Top Tips On Staying Safe In Public During The Pandemic

Published: January 28, 2022

Amid a pandemic, safety is all about social detachment and self-isolation. However, there are times when you must leave the house to pick up some essentials or to run errands.

Helpful Tips To Follow

Mill Valley Funeral Home's top advice for being safe in public settings during a pandemic is as follows:

- You must maintain a distance of approximately 6 feet from individuals in your close surroundings.

- Avoid confined spaces such as small rooms or crowded elevators whenever possible, as you may accidentally inhale the virus.

- When people are out and about, it's natural for them to touch doorknobs, handrails, products, and credit cards. Keeping your hands away from your face, nose, and eyes reduces your risk of contracting the virus.

- Always use a mask while going out, regardless of whether you have a cold or a cough. While there is no conclusive evidence that masks protect against this highly contagious virus, they might help restrict its spread.

- Even if you are leaving your house, you must thoroughly clean your hands. Wash them for at least 20 seconds each time. Always clean your hands when leaving home or upon return from errands. It is advisable to wash your hands with regular soap and water rather than a hand sanitizer. The former is the most efficient way to keep your hands clean.

Bring a hand sanitizer with you when you're out and use it on all surfaces or products you touch. It will help reduce the chances of you contracting the virus.

Always stick to these basic guidelines no matter how many people are around you when you are in a public place. It will keep you and your family safer during these trying times. Please call Mill Valley Funeral Home and have discussions with our team about our funeral plans and pricing.
