How to Prevent Coronavirus
In light of the current spread of novel coronavirus, SERVPRO of Torrance would like to share a few methods to help you stay healthy in these concerning times. First, it is important to provide some background on what the virus is, and how it can affect you. It is important to note that the coronavirus is a virus, not bacteria, so it won’t be killed by antibiotics. The virus is also airborne, meaning you can contract it if you are within 6 feet from an infected person.
The best way to prevent a rapidly spreading illness like this is to keep clean and keep your immune system up. This means eating clean, healthy foods that will fuel a healthy immune system. Proper nutrients are essential when preventing any illness so try to particularly stay away from fast/processed food. Try to wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds under warm water. If soap isn’t accessible at the moment, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Also avoid touching the face and eyes with unwashed hands.
It is essential to stay home as much as possible. The less person-to-person contact you have, the better chances you have of evading the virus. Try to work from home as much as possible. If you work in a service/retail job, avoid touching your face and eyes throughout your whole shift. Wear a mask whenever you are in close contact with sick people and avoid physical contact like hugs and handshakes. It would also benefit to keep your home clean as well. A healthy environment will reflect in your mood and productivity.
