How Do You Support The Global Goals During Times of COVID-19?
Protect Yourself and Others
For all, the last month has been a difficult time, as we try to adapt to life during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Nonetheless, as people, we all have a duty to give our communities and those less fortunate a helping hand. The duty also lies with businesses.
Though this is an extraordinary situation, it is one from which we can make it together.
Be Informed How It Spreads
No vaccine currently exists to prevent coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19).
Avoiding exposure to this virus is the best way to prevent illness.
It is thought that the virus spreads mainly from one person to another. Between people in close contact with each other (within approximately 6 feet).
Breathing droplets produced when a person who is infected coughs, sneezes, or talks.
Everybody Should Do
After you have been in a public area, or even after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, immediately wash your hands with soap for a least 20 seconds and rinse with water.
If soap and water aren’t quite available, use a hand sanitizer that consists of a least 60% alcohol. Cover and rub all the surfaces of the hands together until they are warm.
Do not touch your eyes, nostrils, and mouth with your unwashed hands.
Practice Social Distancing
Even inside your home, avoid close contact with people who are sick. If possible, keep 6 feet between the sick person and other members of the household.
Put some distance between yourself and others outside of your home.
Remember that certain people without symptoms may be able to spread viruses. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm’s length) from each other.
Wear A Face Mask
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face mask when around others, even if you don’t feel sick, you might spread COVID-19 to others.
Everyone will wear a cloth face mask when, for example, they have to go out to the grocery store in public or to pick up other essential needs.
Cotton face covers should not be placed on young children under the age of 2, those who have breathing issues or are unconscious, disabled, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without help.
The face cover of the fabric is intended to protect other people in the event of an infection. Continue to stand between yourself and others for about 6 feet.
The face mask of fabric is not a substitution for social distancing.
Cover Your Mouth and Nose
If you’re in a private place and don’t have a face mask on, keep in mind to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing or use your inside elbow.
Make sure to throw used tissues in the trash.
If there’s no soap and water available, you can use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean and protect your hands.
