Here are some ways to Keep Your Home Safe 

Recommendations from the CDC Website:

  • All Households:
    • Clean hands at the door and at regular intervals
    • Create habits and reminders to avoid touching their face and cover coughs and sneezes
    • Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly
    • Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning
  • Households with vulnerable seniors or those with significant underlying conditions:
    • Significant underlying conditions include heart, lung, kidney disease, diabetes, and conditions that suppress the immune system
    • Have the healthy people in the household conduct themselves as if they were a significant risk to the person with underlying conditions. For example: wash hands frequently before interacting with the person, such as by feeding or caring for the person.
    • If possible, provide a protected space for vulnerable household members
    • Ensure all utensils and surfaces are cleaned regularly
  • Households with sick family members:
    • Give sick members their own room if possible, and keep the door closed
    • Have only one family member care for them
    • Consider providing additional protections or more intensive care for household members over 65 years old or with underlying conditions

These are things every American and community can do now to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
