When it comes to staying safe in these difficult times it is something that is on all of our minds. Sooner or later, the world will need to start moving again, we can’t all stay locked away forever! But there are a few things that you can do to help you stay safe during these difficult times.
Good Hand Hygiene – We know that washing hands is an enormous help in preventing the spread of germs. If you stop and think about how many surfaces you touch as you go about your daily life, it is easy to see how germs can spread. Regular and thorough hand washing is one of the best ways to keep yourself and others safe. Wash your hands before you touch your face, when you come back into your house and as soon as you get to work.
Face Coverings and Masks – Scientists seem to disagree on the use of masks and some of the advice can be confusing. But some places are asking that people wear them, so it is good to have a mask to hand. There are lots of pretty masks online or you could even try your hand at making your own! An R shield mask is a good quality mask too, and comfortable to wear.
Keeping your Distance – Because Covid-19 is spread in water droplets, even if you are close to someone talking that is infected, you do run the risk of catching it. This is where keeping your distance comes in. Because you can’t always tell if people are infected, it is best to assume that everybody is and ensure that you don’t get to close to others when having a conversation.
