The COVID-19 pandemic has taken the world by storm and is spreading at an alarming rate. Tens and thousands of people fall prey to it every day, which is why it is vital to take protective steps. At Affordable Funeral & Cremation, we encourage clients to follow all government guidelines and take reasonable precautions to avoid an infection. Here are some steps to keep in mind:
1. Always Wash Your Hands
This virus spreads through contact so it is vital to wash your hands. Experts recommend washing three to four times a day for at least 20 seconds. They also recommend cleaning hands every time you come back from an errand or touch objects like doorknobs, elevator buttons, or packages.
Many states and countries have imposed strict quarantine and lockdown measures. Following them can help flatten the curve while limiting the spread of the virus. Self-isolate if you experience any symptoms or have traveled to international destinations recently. Monitor your temperature and symptoms regularly if you are ill to keep track of your health.
3. Wear Masks
Wear masks whenever you are running errands. Masks can help limit the transmission of the disease through aerosol. It also ensures you don’t touch your mouth or nose, which can let the virus into your body.
4. Limit Outdoor Trips
Go outdoors only if you need to buy essentials and can maintain a proper distance. Staying at home is the best way to avoid contracting the virus, especially if you are in a region with serious case numbers.
5. Maintain Physical Activity
Your body and mind will suffer if you don’t remain active. Exercise regularly, eat healthy meals, and make sure you get some natural sunlight exposure.
