Minimize Your Risk
Tips to Minimize Your Risk
During these unique times we find ourselves in, many people are much more intently focused on their daily interactions; social distancing is a commonly heard phrase, which is a good first step toward helping curb the spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus currently gripping the world's attention. There are, however, a number of other steps you can take to help minimize the spread of the virus.
- Was your hands frequently, and use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren't available
- Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Cover coughs and sneezes, using either a tissue or the crook of your elbow
- Disinfect “high touch” surfaces on a regular basis, such as:
- light switches
- Increase ventilation by adjusting air conditioning, heat pumps, or opening windows
- Stop shaking hands – use other non-contact methods to greet coworkers and friends
- Use digital platforms for meetings
- If they must be face-to-face, hold meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces
- Disinfect “high touch” surfaces frequently, like:
- light switches
- Consider rescheduling, postponing, or canceling large meetings and gatherings
Stay Home if...
- You are feeling sick
- You have a sick family member in their home
Getting through this pandemic will require effort and vigilance from each and every one of us. While it may seem difficult and stressful to completely change the way we go about our daily lives and business, our efforts to flatten the curve will hopefully bear positive fruit.
