You’ve probably seen, heard, and read a lot about the safety precautionary measures to do for the contagious and lethal COVID-19. However, as time passes, most of us tend to forget these and not follow them anymore, thinking that it’s just some kind of a joke and nothing’s happening.
The news would be incomplete every day if there were no COVID-19 update, whether it was about vaccinations, facilities, or daily active cases reported. With the number of active cases rising every day, surpassing previous peaks, the only thing we can do is protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus and stop it from spreading.
Here are four important measures that you should remember and do.
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR MASK ‘PROPERLY’ WHEN GOING OUTSIDE
It’s already a norm for us to wear our masks when going outside. However, some wear them placing them wherever they want to. When wearing your mask, make sure to wear it properly, covering your mouth, nose, and chin. DISPOSE USED FACE MASK.
MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING
To decrease your risk of infection when others cough, sneeze, or talk, keep at least a 1-meter space between yourself and others. The farther you are from each other, the better. Avoid social gatherings as much as possible. If gatherings are inevitable, do it in an open space. Avoid crowded places where having contacts from other people is unavoidable.
SUSTAIN HAVING PROPER AND GOOD HYGIENE
Regularly and properly sanitize your hands and the things you often touch, such as door handles, mobile phones, etc. Keep yourself from frequently touching your face (eyes, nose, and mouth). When coming home, make sure not to contact any of your family or household members until you wash and change clothes (better if you take a bath). Most importantly, if you’re at home, make sure to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
HAVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
To add up to the precautionary measures mentioned above, have a healthy lifestyle to boost immunity and fight diseases. Exercise from time to time, eat healthy foods and take vitamins.
