Do not leave your house without these three things: CDC
With no vaccine for the novel coronavirus yet, the best and the only way to keep ourselves safe is by being very cautious about protecting ourselves, especially when going out.
Getting exposed to infected individuals can put you and many more people at risk. As the number of cases are increasing every day and more and more places have started to open, it’s very important to keep ourselves protected.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are three things which you must not forget when you go outside. Here is the list:
Wearing a face mask is your best bet to protect yourself from an infected individual. If the market purchased mask makes you feel suffocated, you can opt for a fabric mask, which can also be reused after washing. Here is how many layers your fabric mask should have.
Hand sanitizer is the best alternative to soap and water. Not every place you visit has the provision of washing hands, this is where you need hand sanitizer. CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer with at least 60 per cent alcohol.
But do not use the hand sanitizer unnecessarily. Here are a few incidences when you should not use the hand sanitizer.
We all carry our face mask and hand sanitizer but hardly any of us carry tissues while moving out. Tissues can be used for various purposes, for example, if you want to open a door but do not want to touch the knob, you can use a tissue to clean or if you wish to scratch your face without touching it with your dirty hands, you can use a tissue.
Though we can’t stop going out completely, it’s best to limit our visit to even grocery stores by making a list and getting all the things at once.
