Print This Out So You Do Not Bring The Corona Virus Home!

So I saw this on CNN Thursday and thought that it was important for anyone to have.

Especially because you just never know what the right thing is to do during a pandemic. I mean you can only wash your hands so many times and wipe surfaces down right?

Well a couple of doctors spoke with CNN and broke it all the way down for all of us. Take a look down below.

Make a game plan
Designate one person to be your errand-runner to limit your outside exposures
Set up a disinfecting station — an area outside your home or in a room with low foot traffic where you can disinfect packaged food
When you're out
Avoid coming within less than six feet of others
Wipe handles on carts or baskets while shopping
You don't have to have gloves or a mask — just wash your hands frequently while you're out and avoid touching your face
When you get back
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
Disinfect takeout boxes and packaged foods at your disinfecting station
Thoroughly wash produce before putting it in your kitchen
Disinfect
Disinfect everything you touch — doorknobs, light switches, keys, phone, keyboards, remotes, etc.
Use EPA-approved disinfectants (these include Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and certain Lysol sprays) and leave surfaces wet for 3-5 minutes
Delivery
Ask workers to drop deliveries off on your doorstep or in an area of your complex
If they need you to come to the door, keep six feet of distance
Pay and tip online when possible
After you pick up mail from your mailbox, wash your hands
Laundry
Wash clothes, towels and linens regularly on the warmest setting
Disinfect your laundry hamper, too, or place a removable liner inside it
Don't shake dirty laundry to avoid dispersing the virus in the air
Guests
You shouldn't allow guests over right now
If you need to house a family member or friend, avoid shared living spaces as much as you can
If they need to enter shared living spaces, ask them to keep six feet of distance
If someone in your house gets sick
First, consult your doctor
Isolate them in another room and ask them to use a separate restroom
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces every day
Avoid sharing items with them
Wear gloves when washing their laundry
Continue to wash your hands frequently
Ask them to wear a face mask if they have one
Supplies you'll need
EPA-approved disinfectants
If you don't have disinfectants, make a bleach solution: Mix four teaspoons bleach per quart of water
Or Use a 70% alcohol solution
Laundry detergent
Trash bags
Prescription medicines (you can mail order these)
Canned foods — fruits, veggies, beans
Dry goods — breads, pastas, nut butters
Frozen foods — meats, veggies, fruits
Pets
Supervise your pet in your backyard
It's OK to play with them outside — just keep your distance from other humans
If you're sick, ask someone you live with to take care of them while you recover
If you must care for them while you're sick, wash your hands frequently
