Tip #1: Get Your Flu Vaccine

A flu vaccination will most definitely help to keep you and your loved ones healthy during a pandemic like this one. The Coronavirus spreads a lot like the flu, and, in itself, is very similar to the flu. A vaccine will almost always help during a time like this.

Tip #2: Wash Your Hands

Do you know how the nurse is always telling you to wash your hands after you go to the bathroom and before each meal? Well, washing your hands with soap and water as much as you can help you to not get sick. Then again, you could always use hand sanitizer, but it just doesn’t do quite as well as soap and warm water.

Tip #3: Cover Your Coughs and Sneezes

Another thing the nurse is always telling you, especially during cold and flu season, is to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t, you are exposing millions of tiny bacteria into the air around you and your peers. Doing this makes it more likely that you or someone else could get sick.

Tip #4: Make Your Supplies Last

Let me ask you, do you need to use half a roll of toilet paper just to wipe? Also, please don’t be hoarding all of the toilet paper for yourself. Just think, there are tons of other people out there that need it just as bad as you do. You need to make your supplies last!

Tip #5: Clean and Disinfect

Last but not least, we have the fact that cleaning the hard surfaces in your home with the disinfectant spray will most surely do you some good with helping to not get sick. You need to try and be as clean as possible during times like this. Keeping your work/school space clean does, and always will help during a global pandemic.
