With the global outbreak of COVID-19, many are concerned about the health and safety of themselves, their homes, and their loved ones. 

Older adults and those with underlying medical conditions are at a higher risk of developing serious complications related to the coronavirus. However, people of all ages are being affected. 

Since there’s currently no vaccine for COVID-19 and even individuals showing no symptoms can spread the virus to others, it’s especially important to understand and practice preventative measures like sanitizing and disinfecting.


Help Prevent The Spread Of Coronavirus

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the best way to prevent illness in yourself and others is to avoid exposure to the virus.  

Recommendations also include washing your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds often throughout the day or using hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if soap and water aren’t available. 

Also, keep a safe distance of at least 2 arms-length between yourself and others, avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth, avoid close contact with sick individuals, and consider wearing a mask in public. 


The Importance Of Frequent Disinfecting

The key to slowing the spread of COVID-19 is to practice social distancing. This means that individuals and families are spending more time at home, so it’s important to make sure that the environment where you spend much of your time is safe. 

Canada’s Public Health Agency also recommends frequent disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces like cell phones, computer keyboards, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and more. Making every effort to keep surfaces clean and prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria is one of the best defenses against the spread of coronavirus.
