As we continue further into the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve witnessed rather mundane tasks transform into a source of anxiety for many families and business owners before our eyes. Oftentimes in efforts to keep their loved ones healthy and free of disease, basic tasks around the home and office alike have been disrupted or omitted. Here are a few tips to lessen the stress of keeping things in order during the pandemic.
We have identified that this virus is transmitted primarily via direct contact with those infected or by coming in contact with frequently-touched contaminated surfaces. In fact, depending on the surface and conditions, the novel coronavirus can live on surfaces from anywhere between a couple of hours to multiple days. Fortunately, relatively low-grade disinfectants (such as alcohol or hydrogen-peroxide) can eliminate it from surfaces with ease, meaning a little extra care can go a long way in protecting your family or business.
Maintaining personal hygiene is one of the most important ways you can ensure you are actively limiting the spread of this disease. Be sure to keep your hands clean by refraining from coughing or sneezing into them and washing them often (like, really often!). At the very minimum, remain at least three feet away from other people, especially those showing symptoms. The more distance the better, as airborne droplets from a sneeze or cough can travel quite far.
As for preventing the spread of disease within your home or business, keep track of what surfaces see frequent human contact and ensure your cleaning regiment addresses them properly. Usually, it’s best to apply a mixture of soap or detergent and water to a surface first, then sanitize it with a product strong enough to kill the virus. Be sure to follow the instructions for your chosen product closely, as many cleaning solutions require sitting on a surface for a period of time for full effectiveness or may have special precautions to consider.
