BIG FIVE ANTIVIRUS HYGIENE HABITS
The spread of the coronavirus can be prevented if we take the right measures personally and as a community. Please read and remind yourself, your employees and your customers of five practices that we already know can make a big difference.
- Perhaps the most important advice is to wash your hands frequently, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Do not touch your face (eyes, mouth, or nose) unless you have thoroughly washed your hands. (It’s important to develop a habit of not touching your face randomly).
- Cover your mouth with your elbow when sneezing or coughing. (if you use a tissue, dispose of it carefully; droplets with the virus can fly into the air.) Don’t be a 'hand-cougher.’
- If you have flu-like symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, or fever, stay home (It’s better for you and for the people in your lives even if it’s not a coronavirus).
- If you need to be with someone who has the flu or flu-like symptoms, stay at least six feet away at all times from the infected person.
