WASH YOUR HANDS and AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE WITH UNWASHED HANDS.

When in public, avoid touching your face. Wash your hand consistently and for, at least, twenty seconds. Some recommended the amount of time it takes to sing someone happy birthday, but most song choruses will work, as well. Here is more tips for hand-washing, here.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

It’s simple, stay home! Avoid going in public unless for essential errands, like groceries or walking the dog. Maybe, you just need a wall, as well . It’s totally ok to get exercise outside, just do it on your own. FaceTime or call your friends, but avoid contact with anyone you don’t live with. You will be saving lives and stopping the spread. 80% of those who get the virus don’t know that they are sick or show very mild symptoms. Just because you feel healthy, doesn’t mean that you are immune.

DON’T PANIC. REMAIN INFORMED AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH.

Remember that you are not alone. The world is united through this pandemic, and we will get through it by following protocol, avoiding panic and taking care of each other.
