Personal Responsibility in the Coronavirus Outbreak

The situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic changes every day. While we are still learning new information about coronavirus and the effects of infection, we do know enough to take action on behalf of our families and communities today. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, remember that you are not in this alone. Even as more and more Americans take refuge at home, we do so as a way of supporting the larger community. Social distancing helps slow the spread of coronavirus. It is the most important thing you can do to protect your neighbors, loved ones, and vulnerable strangers.

Here are some other important coronavirus tips.

Be careful what you share on social media. Not all information is accurate information. Sharing knowledge is essential in times like these, but know your source. Turn to the CDC, WHO, and other trusted health organizations for updates regarding coronavirus.

Follow guidelines and procedures outlined by the CDC with the goal of limiting coronavirus spread. If you think you exhibit the common symptoms of infection, call your doctor and follow their medical advice. Observe best practices to protect your household as you overcome your illness. Use a separate bathroom if possible and disinfect the space after each use. Immediately toss out tissues, do not share food or personal items, and wear a mask.

Medical masks are in short supply and must be reserved for those who need them most. The CDC recommends that you use homemade masks when out in public. The surgical N95 medical masks should be reserved for healthcare officials only as they are in severe shortages as the coronavirus pandemic has skyrocketed through America.

Maintain a clean property. If you are a business owner, be aware that coronavirus can remain viable on a surface for up to three days. Regular sanitization goes a long way towards maintaining a clean environment for your customers and your employees. However, if you’re looking to have full peace of mind you will need professional deep cleaning services. You may even consider hiring a professional contractor specializing in sanitization and disinfection solutions. 911 Restoration is an excellent local resource for this service. We have franchise locations from coast to coast. All our teams are trained to follow CDC and EPA protocols. They deep clean both residential and commercial properties from top to bottom.

So much still remains unknown and uncertain. But if we all do our part, we can look forward to a Fresh Start on the other side.
