In order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, it’s important to understand how it’s transmitted.
Keep an eye out for the symptoms.
If you’re sick with COVID-19 or suspect that you are, the CDC guide contains a lot of useful information to keep you and your family safe.
It’s important to make sure you’re ready and make sure you’re prepared. The CDC checklist is a useful way to get started.
In addition to cleaning your hands, it’s important to know how to clean frequently touched surfaces and other items in your home. The CDC has great resources on how to clean and disinfect your home.
This list of EPA-Registered disinfectants is very helpful when figuring out what products to use. In general, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol will do the trick.
Another useful resource we’ve found is the Coronavirus shopping list generator. A lot of us are shopping for more people and eating more meals at home. This tool can help you plan a shopping list that has the right out amounts of essential ingredients.
