Many people are in panic mode right now. This thing has legs and is already pandemic wolrdwide. Who knows where or when the corona virus will show up next. All we can do is act as responsibly as possible to minimize not only our own risks, but the risks for those around us.
Here are a few common sense things that often seem overlooked. Let's do our diligence and see if we can all make a difference:
- NEVER cover your mouth with your hand. PLEASE use your sleeve/ crook of your elbow instead so you don't spread all those germs around when you start touching things, thereafter. Phew!
- Unless you're sick yourself, please leave those face masks off. Buying into unnecessary 'protections' just exacerbates shortages. These won't do much good for you, but WILL be needed by medical personnel who are in more direct contact with those who are infected, or are possibly so.
- Don't spread more falsehoods and disinformation by amplifying unsubstantiated reports that are being made for polical reasons and not backed by SCIENCE.
Stay calm. Level heads and cool thinking serve us better than rash reactions. Nobody quite knows how this thing will resolve, but we're fortunate to live in an age where brilliant minds and problem solvers still exist. We may have to plan for the worst, but let's hope for the best.
In the meantime, if you want to eliminate the habit of leaving your cell (etc) lying around on the floor (& whatever else), just stop by. We're happy to help you keep your stuff closer...& cleaner! :)
