💜💜💜 I wanted to send this special message out to my fans, family and friends. 💜💜💜
I know that it can be difficult to follow all of the guidelines and protocols set by the CDC. The New York Times recently stated that it is human nature to touch our eyes, noses and mouths, and that many of us do this all day long without even realizing it. As we all work together through this pandemic, we need to realize how important our roles are for the safety of ourselves and those around us.
🤧 THE FACTS: 🤧 The virus can easily spread from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when someone with the virus coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land on surfaces or be inhaled into the lungs of people who are nearby, or also spread via touching of objects and then touching one's face.
I know that many of your are already familiar with a few of these tips, but I wanted to share this list to help you protect yourself and your loved ones from illness. If you can stop even just yourself from contracting the virus, you will potentially be protecting dozens of people around you that you interact with every day. 😘
1. Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water (warm water preferably). Instead of counting to 20 seconds, some sing “Happy Birthday” in their heads. (I like to think about Birthday cake as I do this. LOL!) 🎂🎂
2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 😱 ⬅ (Don't be this guy....) Especially when in public places. ☣ An extra tip could be to carry some hand sanitizer in your pocket or keep some Kleenex tissues or napkins to use when opening doors or pushing a shopping carts, to even pressing elevator buttons. 👍👍👍 (If you don't have any, you can learn to make hand sanitizer yourself by watching this YouTube video.) I tried it myself and it is very easy to do! 😊😊😊
3. Cover your cough and sneezes. 🤧 Make sure you wear long sleeves when you are having to go anywhere, like shopping or working. 🤳 To cough or sneeze on your forearm sleeve, or inside your business jacket coat. But if you have a tissue or napkin in your pocket, cough or sneeze in it instead. This helps in stopping the respiratory droplets from your mouth from landing on anyone nearby. 💦💦
4. And finally avoid shaking hands, giving hugs, or other up close greetings to others. 🙇 Keep at least a 6 foot distance from others. ..🚶♀️......🚶..You can still talk, wave and smile at them from a safe distance, but to help in preventing this virus from spreading, we must keep a distance from one another as much as we can, especially when out in the public. 😇😇
5. LASTLY, and this one is SOOOOOOOO important. Make sure you disinfect your cell phone, steering wheel and door handles! I CANNOT stress to you how important this last one is, especially with your phone. Don't believe me? Watch this video below. You don't want to win the grossest phone award. EWWWHH.. 🤢
📲📲 MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THAT PHONE SEVERAL TIMES A DAY PEOPLE! 📲📲
Please let me if you know of any other tips you may have or have heard that might be useful to others as well.
The more all share the word with one another, the quicker we can get through this together! 🙏🙏
SENDING MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL!
