Times are changing recently. With the recent turn of events, our world has changed because of the Coronavirus 2019 or also known as COVID-19. In March 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. Public health groups, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are monitoring the pandemic and posting updates on their websites. These groups have also issued recommendations for preventing and treating the illness. There are also a lot of people who push for coronavirus cleanup in Bradenton.

Before we give some tips on how to protect yourself from COVID-19, let’s learn how this virus is spreading.

Data has shown that it spreads from person to person among those in close contact (within about 6 feet, or 2 meters). The virus spreads by respiratory droplets released when someone infected with the virus coughs, sneezes or talks.

Now, let’s discuss how to protect yourself from COVID-19.

Clean your hands often

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others

You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities. Continue to keep about 6 feet distance between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

Cover coughs and sneezes

If you are in a private setting and do not have your cloth face covering on, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow. Also, throw used tissues in the trash. After that, immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Make it a habit to use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
