5 Health Safety Tips to Help You Navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over.

It is important to continue following CDC and local government guidelines to stay healthy.

Here, we have gathered some of the most important information for you to prioritize your health and safety during this worldwide pandemic.

1. Social Distancing

Even though there are fewer viral videos about it, social distancing is still very important.

When in public spaces–restaurants, parks, sidewalks, grocery stores–always stay at least six feet away from other people.

This distance is important because it decreases the likelihood of the virus traveling all the way between people.

2. Wear a Face Mask

It is key to always wear a face covering. This means something that covers your mouth and nose at all times.

Whenever possible, you should wear a medically sound mask. If you use two-layered cloth masks, please make sure they are regularly cleaned.

Wearing a mask is essential to making sure you aren’t putting others at risk.

The mask is like a goalie, a last line of defense. But, that doesn’t mean everyone else on the team shouldn’t try and stop the offense.

Continue social distancing and doing everything else on this list, even while wearing your mask.

3. Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands is always important. But, it is even more important during the coronavirus pandemic.

The last thing you want is to bring something dangerous into your home just because you forgot to wash your hands.

Always wash hands before and after leaving the house. In addition, wash hands several times a day and avoid touching your face.

Make sure you have good soap and sing the birthday song twice through while washing. This ensures your health safety.

4. Cleaning Safety Tips

Cleanliness should extend past your hands, and even past your body.

It is very important that, along with following the other safety tips, you make sure your home is properly cleaned.

Cleaning services are essential businesses that will help ensure the safety and wellbeing of you and your family.

In fact, some services offer virus removal cleaning.

This is the number one cleaning tip to follow. Bring in a professional so you can ensure the cleanliness and safety of your home.

5. Get Vaccinated

Even if you’re doing everything else right, the best thing you can do to stop the spread of COVID-19 is get vaccinated.

Vaccines are now readily available in most places. So, now is the time to get in line!

Protect Yourself and Others

We’ve all been through a lot together this past year. That’s what makes these safety tips so important.

If you do everything we’ve listed here, you can rest easy knowing you’re doing everything you can to stop the spread of COVID.

So, before you go, remember to:

  • Stay six feet apart
  • Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands
