Dont be a spreader

Most of the people I know are taking the Coronavirus seriously. They are following stay at home orders, and other guidelines set out by the local, state, and federal government. They are staying home if sick, washing hands, wearing gloves, using hand sanitizer, and cleaning surfaces and items they come into contact with. Such as cell phones, door handles, purses, shopping carts, etc.

For as much as they and I do to limit our exposure; it only takes one to spread the virus to others. As Mel and Max Brooks say, “Don’t be a spreader”:

If you are sick please stay at home.

The CDC has a website to go to for information; written by experts: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

From their site:

  • Practice social distancing. Stay 6 feet from people.
  • Wash your hands for at least twenty seconds.
  • Make sure hand sanitizer has at least 60% rubbing alcohol.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unclean hands.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
  • Keep distance between yourself and other people. Especially those who are at a higher risk.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

If you wear surgical gloves remember that proper removal of a contaminated glove is: glove to glove, skin to skin. Also wash hands after removal. The video below shows the technique.

You can also bunch up the first glove removed in your hand before removing the second glove. This can further protect against accidental exposure.


Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or expert. I am however just repeating the same information that is out there. In an educational informational manner. Please confirm any information you read with real sources. The experts like the CDC and your state and local health departments.
