It seems like washing your hands should go without saying, but in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, it’s worth emphasizing the necessity of consistently using effective hand sanitizer as a preventative measure to stop the spread and keep you and your family healthy.
COVID-19 is believed to spread through contact, either by touching a contaminated surface or coming into close contact with an infected person. Thus hand sanitization is your first defense in ridding yourself of any potentially harmful materials you may have come in contact with, whether that be the cart at the grocery store, the door handle to the bank, or for example while pumping gas.
Though it is suggested that you wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with hot soapy water, in the absence of soap and water, hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol or greater should be an effective alternative. In addition to consistently sanitizing your hands, and common objects such as car keys and door handles, it is also absolutely essential to avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
Be conscious to remain six feet or farther from all individuals as the disease may be able to be transferred should a person cough or sneeze in your vicinity. Additionally, it is highly recommended that all individuals wear a mask while out in public. Acknowledging social distancing, but most especially staying home, and significantly limiting time spent out in public is also the most effective way to avoid contracting the virus.
As there has not yet been a vaccine developed for COVID-19, preventative measures are not only vital to keeping you and your family healthy, but to curbing the spread, helping our overwhelmed healthcare systems and saving lives.
