The Most Important Coronavirus Tips to Follow During the Pandemic
Raleigh has always been a community built on kindness and neighborly support. As the coronavirus pandemic threatens lives and livelihoods, we must tap into that spirit of compassion now more than ever. Every choice we make as individuals has a ripple effect, with the potential to either harm or protect those in our wider community.
If the barrage of information in the news and social media has you feeling overwhelmed, we can help. While it’s important to keep looking to the CDC and WHO for updates, we can share some common sense coronavirus tips today. With these important lifestyle changes, you prioritize the wellness of your family, your neighbors, and yourself.
First, do not underestimate the importance of social distancing. If you carry coronavirus, you may not see symptoms for as many as 14 days. However, asymptomatic carriers can still spread the virus. This means you may be contagious long before you know you are ill. This is true for you and everyone you come in contact with. Stay home as much as possible, and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and others when you venture into the community.
Know the symptoms of coronavirus. Typical signs of infection include cough, fever, and shortness of breath. The CDC recommends calling your doctor if you experience these symptoms. Seek immediate medical attention if you exhibit warning signs such as:
- Consistent chest pain
- Bluish lips or face
- New confusion
- Inability to arouse
- Difficulty breathing
If you become ill and your doctor instructs you to recover at home, isolate yourself from other members of your household. Do not share personal items and use a separate bathroom, if possible.
It may be in your best interest to call a professional disinfection crew to service your home or business. Deep cleaning is extremely important at this time, as coronavirus remains viable on certain surfaces for up to a few days. 911 Restoration is a great resource for expert sanitization.
