Keeping your Home Sanitized and Safe During the Pandemic
Between staying at home, learning how to keep busy, and doing your best to keep our community safe, the last thing you need to worry about is danger within your own home. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there are a few things that you can do to keep your living space safer. When you need to go out, you risk bringing germs inside, even if you are not infected. Besides washing your hands thoroughly with hot water, there are a few other steps you can take to minimize contagion.
Your clothes could potentially carry the virus. Studies have shown that COVID-19 can live for a long time on surfaces, so it is best to wash clothes you’ve worn outside in the hottest setting that your laundry machine allows for. This will minimize the chances that it will hide in your fabric and potentially infect you or your loved ones.
You should also disinfect any high-contact zones. This includes doorknobs, cabinet handles, and anywhere that people often need to touch. Ideally, you should use a sanitizer wipe, but if those aren’t available, some warm water and soap should suffice.
