Combating the Coronavirus at Home:

The CDC advises household members to prepare for a coronavirus outbreak in their communities. Among the steps that should be taken are creating a list of nearby aid organizations, making an emergency contact list, inquiring about workplace action plans, preparing for temporary closures of schools or childcare facilities, and educating one’s family on preventative measures.

The public health institute says the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus, which is spread mainly from person to person, and recommends social distancing. It also urges people to disinfect their homes and to wash their hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; before eating; and after visiting a public space. If soap and water are not readily available, hand sanitizer with 60 percent or more alcohol can be used as a substitute. If you are sick, stay home and do not go out unless it is to seek medical care. If you must leave your residence, cover your mouth and nose with a face mask or a cloth and maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and others.

To learn more about what preventive measures you can take, you can visit the CDC’s website here.
