How to Protect Yourself and Others from The Coronavirus in Vacaville

The COVID-19 pandemic can target anyone, and it can have fatal consequences depending on the person's current state of health.

The elderly and anyone who has severe underlying medical conditions like lung or heart disease have higher risks of developing serious complications of the COVID-19. This is the reason why strict implementations of the lockdown and community quarantine have been imposed by the government to limit the spread of the virus.

How it spreads in Vacaville

As of today, there is no vaccine that can prevent COVID-19. For now, it is best to take precautionary measures to avoid exposure to the virus. Person-to-person transmission is the most common way that the virus spreads. Here is an outline of how a person can easily acquire the virus recommended by Vacaville chiropractors:

  • People who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes.
  • These droplets can enter through the mouths or noses of a person nearby or be inhaled directly through the lungs.
  • Recent data has shown that COVID-19 can also be spread by a person who is asymptomatic.

Safety precautions

There are safety measures that you can practice to prevent yourself from acquiring and spreading the virus from and to others. Here's what you should do:

Wash your hands often:

  • You need to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 minutes especially if you've been in a public place, or after you've coughed, sneezed, or even blew your nose.
  • If you don't have access to soap and water, you can also use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol content. Make sure to apply it on every area of your hand and rub them together until it dries.
  • If you haven't washed or sanitized your hands yet, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Avoid close contact:

  • Don't get too close to people who are sick, even inside your home. Maintain a distance of 6 feet between you and the sick individual.
  • Put some distance between you and the people outside your home.
    • Avoid going to places with large groups.
    • Maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from other people.
    • Avoid gathering people in groups.
    • Keep in mind that people who don't have symptoms yet can still spread the virus.
    • You need to always keep your distance from people who are at high risks of getting sick (e.g. the elderly and those with severe underlying conditions).

Always use personal protective equipment (PPE):

  • Even if you don't feel sick, you can easily spread the virus to others.
  • Wearing a face mask will not only protect you from the virus but could also prevent you from spreading it to other people in case you're infected.
  • Don't use a facemask that's meant for a health worker.
  • Even if you're wearing a facemask, continue maintaining a safe distance of 6 feet from other people.

Cover coughs and sneezes:

  • Always dispose used tissues properly inside the trash can.
  • After sneezing and coughing, wash your hands with soap and water right away. If not, you can use a hand sanitizer instead.
  • If you're in a private setting, make sure to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. You can also use the inside of your elbow to cough or sneeze into if ever you don't have a tissue beside you. Just make sure to wash or sanitize it right away.

Clean and disinfect:

  • Make sure to always clean dirty surfaces. Soap and detergent works well when cleaning surfaces before you start disinfecting.
  • You should clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces inside your home. This includes handles, desks, phones, faucets, toilets, keyboards, sinks, countertops, doorknobs, tables, and light switches.
  • Once you're done cleaning objects and surfaces, use an EPA-registered household disinfectant right after.

The spread of COVID-19 is no joke and it puts the entire world to a standstill. By following the said precautions, you're not only avoiding your risk of getting infected but also preventing it from spreading unto others.
