Whether you’re 25 years old with no underlying health conditions or a 70 years old with lung disease—we all have to be mindful and proactive. If you get the coronavirus, you can spread it to others who are vulnerable. Therefore, this is a time we all have to be responsible and selfless.
Coronavirus: Ways to be Responsible and Selfless
Scroll down to read ways to be responsible and selfless during this pandemic.
The coronavirus is real whether you like it or not. Please don’t downplay it. It’s essential to abide by your city’s and state’s guidelines and ordinances. When you don’t listen, you’re part of the reason why the virus is spreading.
Check up on elderly family, friends, and neighbors to see how they’re doing and if they need anything. Remember, they are more vulnerable and may not leave the house because of it.
Check up on family and friends with and without pre-existing medical conditions. Ask them if they need anything.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 SECONDS. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water is unavailable.
Cough and sneeze into a tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze into your elbow or shoulder.
Don’t touch your nose, mouth, ears, or eyes while you’re out or with unwashed hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects like your phone. Apple announced it’s safe to use disinfecting wipes to disinfect iPhone.
Keep a 6 feet distance from others when you’re outside your home. You don’t know if you’re carrying the virus os someone else is.
Practice social distancing. As much as you want to have Friday game night with your friends, it is not safe to do so right now. Remember, you will be able to have many Friday game nights in the future. Priorities over pleasure.
Sadly, social distancing is threatening businesses. Support your favorite businesses by ordering-in with a generous tip or purchase gift cards & merchandise.
Foster a dog or cat if you have extra space and money.
If you’re feeling unwell (even the slightest), please self-quarantine to avoid spreading the virus just in case you have it.
Remember, we are all in this together. Our responsible and selfless actions can help contain the virus from spreading. Stay safe everyone!
