We may be exhausted but the COVID-19 pandemic is sadly, here to stay for a significant amount of time. The world is working out how to adapt to living with it and so should we.
You can protect yourself and others around you by knowing the facts and taking appropriate precautions. It can also be achieved by staying informed of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak.
You can definitely reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple safety measures:
By Wearing a Face Mask (Increases Protection up to 67%)
The best way to prevent Corona Virus (COVID-19) is through good respiratory hygiene. Masks can help prevent you from getting infected from others, and it can also help prevent others from getting infected in case you have a cough or cold.
A cloth mask is intended to trap droplets that are released when the wearer talks, coughs, or sneezes. Masks can be made from common and effective materials, like ours which is made of tightly woven cotton and include multiple layers of fabric.
It is recommended that you wear a cloth face mask when you're around people who don't live with you and in public settings with proper social distancing.
By Wearing a Face Mask and Face Shield (Increases Protection up to 93%)
Wearing a face shield can help us avoid touching our eyes, nose, and mouth. Our hands touch various surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, our hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and infect you.
With masks, we feel the need to touch our faces more. We also find ourselves adjusting them or even pulling them down to talk to people (which we shouldn’t do). Face shields take all of this out of the equation. Our face shield is styled to be easy to wear, and designed to be a functional cap as well. You can even wear glasses (minus the fog) with them.
Lastly, our face shields are reusable and easy to clean with an antibacterial wipe, alcohol, or soap and water.
By Wearing a Face Mask and Face Shield and Practicing Social-Distancing (Increases Protection up to 99%)
Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household.
To practice social or physical distancing, maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and others. Why? When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person has the disease.
Everyone has a role to play in slowing the spread and protecting themselves, their family, and their community. In addition to practicing everyday steps to prevent COVID-19, always remember that keeping space between you and others is one of the best tools we have to avoid being exposed to this virus and slowing its spread in communities.
