Steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus.


As coronavirus spreads dramatically worldwide, we at Crytivo would like to remind you how to protect yourself and others around you, since there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 at this time (3/12/2020). 
 

While relatively healthy individuals are currently overcoming the virus, remember that there are many people with compromised immune systems, disabilities, cancers, heart conditions, chronic illnesses, and other ailments that can affect their ability to fight the virus. Please be considerate of these people and our elderly and avoid public spaces if you have any symptoms (coughing, fever, sneezing).


The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

-Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
-Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
 

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Clean your hands often

 
  • -Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • -If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • -Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Cover coughs and sneezes

 
  • -Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • -Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • -Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Wear a facemask if you are sick


  • -If you are sick:  You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.
  • -If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

Clean and disinfect


  • -Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • -If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.


Stay safe,
