3 THINGS YOU SHOULD BE DOING TO PREVENT GETTING COVID
By this time, all of us should be familiar with the mask-wearing-hand-washing-social-distancing rules we’ve all (hopefully) been practicing for the last few months. But with the rate of infection climbing alarmingly every day, you should ramp up your family’s protection routine, especially for the cold months ahead. Here are 3 things to start doing immediately:
- WEAR THE MASK PROPERLY
The point of the mask is to prevent microscopic droplets from your nose and mouth getting out and potentially harming other people, and vice versa. That’s why it needs to be covering both your mouth AND your nose. It goes without saying that having it dangling around your chin isn’t helping anyone.
- SHOP QUICKLY
You may be tempted to browse since you’re not getting out as much, but it really is better to get in and out as quickly as possible. Since your primary risk of infection is coming into contact with an infected person (who may or may not be showing symptoms), the less time you’re exposing yourself to others – the better. Make a list beforehand, and shop alone. And remember that for all your pharmacy requirements, you can have everything delivered via MedsToGo’s convenient service to decrease your risk of exposure.
- WIPE GROCERIES DOWN
Studies have shown that the virus can survive for up to 24 hours on various surfaces, so it’s a good idea to disinfect groceries before packing them away. Use at least 70% alcohol or soap and water. And always wash your hands and fresh produce before preparing food.
Since we’ve all got so much to worry about already, why not make life a little easier with MedsToGo’s convenient delivery service. You won’t even have to bother with the mask, as all your pharmacy supplies can be delivered straight to your door. Don’t forget the disinfectant!
