An Important Message Regarding the COVID-19 Virus
It’s time that even us here at NLS Limo confront the elephant in the room: coronavirus. As everyone is no doubt aware, this is an incredibly serious issue, especially for people of lower income, people with already poor immune systems, and the elderly. In light of the apparent unchecked spread of the virus throughout the continental United States, we wanted to write a post concerning the virus and ways that you can keep both yourself and your community safe throughout this period. Perhaps it seems odd that we are delving into this sort of subject matter, but if you consider what we normally focus on with this blog – transportation to and from large scale public events – it becomes clear that we not only have a right but an obligation to comment on the developments of the virus and things that can be done to help stop the spread.
Wash Your Hands
Hand-washing is a very easy and very essential way to both prevent yourself from getting sick and from transmitting the illness to anyone else should you become ill. Yes, hand-washing is boring. Yes, washing for 20 seconds (or the amount of time it takes to sing Happy Birthday two times in a row) seems like a long time. It’s okay to be grumpy about it, but it is important that you nevertheless wash your hands.
Cover Your Mouth
Sneezing in public is unavoidable. The sneeze arrives and we cannot deny it access to the world! What is avoidable is the uncovered sneeze. If you’re in the habit of just turning your head or even of letting it go unchecked however it comes, now is the time to change. Something as simple as sneezing into the crook of your arm or your shoulder will do wonders to prevent the spread of those troubling droplets we’ve heard so much about in the news and from healthcare professionals.
Something of a luxury within our country where a massive number of us don’t have paid time off, don’t have health insurance, or don’t have health insurance that will actually cover a visit to the doctor, staying home is still the best way to both prevent coming into contact with the virus and of spreading it. Especially if you become sick, no matter if you believe it to be just a cold, the value and importance of staying home cannot be overstated.
