In recent weeks the CDC has reported increasing cases of COVID-19 impacting the United States. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that is spread mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets from people who are already infected. During these stressful times it’s critical you take steps to reduce the likelihood of yourself or love one’s becoming infected. 

Starting off from a personal hygiene standpoint remember to cover your mouth with a tissue or paper towel when you cough or sneeze. Immediately throw it in the garbage afterward. Secondly, minimize touching your face. It can be difficult to do and is often a common occurrence throughout the day, however, people seemingly become sick through touching a surface where germs are present then touching their mouths, eyes, or nose, the main entryways of the outside world into a person’s body.

Secondly, be proactive in your cleaning habits for your home. Utilizing CDC approved disinfectants to clean kitchen and bathroom countertops is a great next step. These are high touch surfaces for people especially if you reside in a property where a lot of people are present. Cleaning those surfaces regularly and thoroughly is quintessential in your proactive efforts.
