Covid-19 Effective Safety Measures

May 12th, 2021 /

Professionals can assist employees in becoming more aware of effective prevention measures in addition to providing facts from trusted sources. When it comes to cold and flu season and this COVID-19 outbreak, good practices include cleaning high-touch areas such as door handles and rails, washing hands frequently, avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, practicing good respiratory hygiene, and staying home when sick.

Safety professionals can also support their employees as they prepare their families for a potential outbreak in their community by following these steps:

  • If they need to stay home for two weeks, provide them with nonperishable food and toiletries.
  • Ensure that your family and pets have adequate supplies of prescription medication.
  • Should a parent become ill, consider alternate childcare arrangements.
  • Family members and friends of the elderly should have appropriate resources. “Those at greatest risk are the elderly and those with preexisting medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or immunocompromising conditions.” In the past few months, COVID-19 has been detected in about 80% of the people who contracted it, with mild illness that they were able to self-care at home.

Don’t Do These Things

  • No need to panic!. Although we all know the basic precautions to take to prevent infection, the internet is filled with inaccurate information about the virus, causing panic among people.
  • Avoid touching your face: WHO has repeatedly advised us not to touch our face, nose, or mouth too often. This minimizes the chance of getting infected as the infection doesn’t reach your nose or mouth, where it can become airborne. Keeping your hands clean will also reduce the risk of the infection spreading.
  • Don’t believe everything you see on the internet: If you are searching the internet for information on the symptoms and possible cure for Coronavirus, beware of false information. Many people believe false information and promises about the cure for the disease, making many people misinformed.
  • There are no alternatives to conventional treatment: Please do not seek any treatments besides those recommended by your doctor if you believe you have contracted the virus. The virus cannot be treated effectively using alternative treatments. Infected individuals should follow the advice of their doctors. If you neglect to seek adequate medical care, you are a threat to everyone around you. Everyone should consult a reputable medical practitioner about the available treatments in order to prevent the spread of the disease.
