6 steps to prevent the spread of coronavirus

As news coverage of the coronavirus continues, you may be worried about how to protect yourself from getting sick.

While worrying won’t help anything, there are several things you can do to help prevent the spread of germs and sickness.

Know the facts:

Disinfect and disinfect some more:

  • That kitchen counter, every doorknob you turn – don’t get me started on the family shared iPad. Cleaning frequently touched surfaces is a good idea regardless of flu season and the coronavirus.

Do my hair toss, wash my hands

Hands off your face

  • Remember that iPad everyone had their hands on? Germs from that surface stay on your hands and fingertips and can spread to your nose, eyes and mouth.

Social distancing

  • If you’re looking for a reason to stay away from other people – it’s important now more than ever. Avoiding crowds like sporting events, concerts and big meetings are a good idea, work from home if you’re able to do so.

Call the doctor

  • If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention. Call before heading into the doctor’s office to help prevent spreading or picking up germs.
