What you should know:
The virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you!
All the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average.
The virus only infects your lungs.
The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth - it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.
NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.
Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. For example, Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
Open doors with your closed fist or hip - do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.
Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available. When wiping the handle of grocery carts or flat surfaces, swipe in one direction. “Back and Forth” wiping spreads it.
Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you enter a client’s home or return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.
Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home's entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can't immediately wash your hands.
If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
Zinc lozenges (80-90 mg per day) may support minimizing symptoms
Contact the office immediately if a client has a cough and fever of greater than 1000 F
