As a community, let’s join together to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. COVID-19 can live on any surface for up to 72 hours. There are a few things you can do to lower the chances of spreading and receiving this virus.
First, it is very important that we wash our hands. Not just once, but periodically throughout the day. When washing our hands it is key to do it for at least twenty seconds. You can encourage your little kids to count out loud or have them sing a song such as “If You’re Happy And You Know It, Wash Your Hands” (posted below).
Next, it is important that we keep our hands off of our faces. Most people don’t realize how often we touch our faces throughout the day. Being aware of this will make us more conscious about how often we touch our face and, hopefully, help us not to do it.
Another way to prevent the spread is make sure you stay quarantined with the same people and to limit it to a gathering of no more than ten people. Constantly having new people in and out of your house can spread the virus even if the people show no symptoms.
Lastly, if you go to the grocery store, or any other essential business, make sure to wear a mask.
If we can all follow these simple steps, we will be back to our everyday lives in no time. Let’s join together and help make the world a healthier place. A healthier world, a healthier you.
