We are living in the midst of one of the most serious pandemic diseases any of us have seen in our lifetime. While we are learning more and more about the nature of COVID-19 every week, there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the topic, not to mention how long the stay at home orders and practicing social distancing will be in place. However, we are here to help by providing you with a list of ways you can help prevent the disease from spreading and best practices to prevent yourself from contracting the virus.
First and foremost, for news on Coronavirus, we advise checking the following websites for daily updates and helpful information:
- cdc.gov – Centers for Disease Control
- who.int – World Health Organization

The most important thing we can do at this time is ensure the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones, and do our best to ensure the health and safety of those who may be more at risk than others. Below we’ve included a list of tips and best practices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Practice social distancing when around others, try to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet, and avoid contact with others
- Avoid physical contact, such as hugs, shaking hands, high-fives, thumb-wrestling, etc.
- Wash your hands with soap and water often throughout the day, especially after you have been out of the house, or if you have been coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. While many of us consider washing our hands to be trivial and simple, there is actually a most effective way to ensure thorough washing of your hands. For more information take a look at this article from the World Health Organization on how to properly clean your hands to protect against infection: https://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/
- Try to avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes
- If you are feeling ill, stay at home to avoid contaminating others. If your symptoms become extreme seek out medical care
- Cover your mouth using the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze
- Use disinfectant wipes or a disinfectant solution to clean surfaces that are touched on a daily basis. This could be light switches, doorknobs, tables and counter tops, desks, phones, keyboards, game controllers, faucets, sinks, and toilets
