Washing Hands

Last night, I went to the grocery and I could not find latex gloves, antibacterial gel or toliet paper (Still unsure on the toliet paper one...) So, during a time when some may be unsure if we should be stocking up to keep our lives overtly sanitary, we wanted to share with you some basic tips on staying clean and terminating those germs.  Obviously, our assigned staff and workers’ safety and well-being are paramount to us, as is the safety and well-being of our clients' employees. Therefore, here are some basic tips to take care of yourselves, protect others, and monitor the latest developments. Per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you should do the following:  

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

  • Stay home when you are sick

  • Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask

  • Wash their hands often (sing Happy Birthday to yourself while you wash - why not, everyday should be your birthday!)

You can also keep up-to-date on developments by visiting the About Coronavirus Disease 2019 and CDC’s Frequently Asked Questions and Answers webpages.  

Stay safe, stay clean and fire those germs!
