In this time of Coronavirus life is different. This is to save lives. It could be the lives of our family members, our Employers, or the lives of people we will never meet. We all have to do things to keep us all safe. This will slow the spread of the virus. If we slow it down enough, hundreds of thousands of lives will be saved. You don't know if you are carrying Coronavirus, it may take a week or more to show symptoms if you've picked it up. So we must all assume that everyone has cooties and act accordingly. Many of us used to do this when we were kids; it's not that hard!

The Most Important Things
These small things mage a HUGE difference!

  1. Wash Your Hands, Wash Them Again: The best soap to use is regular soap. it breaks down the cells of the virus, killing it. Or alcohol-based cleaners. Wash your entire hands, front and back, thumbs, everything. Do this many times every day.
  2. Spread Out: Otherwise known as Social Distancing, stay at least six feet away from others, unless work requires you to get closer. This keeps the virus from moving from one person to another.
  3. Clean Everything That Gets Touched A Lot: Door handles, light switches, phones, appliances, buttons, everything your hands touch the most use antiseptic or alcohol-based wipes, like Clorox or Lysol wipes, or a general purpose disinfecting cleaner. Do this often.
  4. Sneeze or Cough Into Your Sleeve, Not Your Hand: If you forget, wash your hands immediately.
  5. Hands Off the Face: Avoid touching your face. The virus gets into your system through liquids, like in your mouth or eyes. Keep your hands away. If you have to rub your eyes, for example, wash your hands first.
