What is a safe distance?

Every activity in our every day lives require interacting with other people whether it’s shopping at the grocery store, working at the office or gathering around the table with our family. When we speak to others or cough or sneeze we produce tiny, microscopic respiratory droplets. It is these droplets that potentially contagious whether or not we have symptoms! It can take up to five days before we start showing symptoms! We are still infectious and can potentially infect other people during this time. The recommended distance it is suggested that we distance ourselves from others is AT LEAST 2 metres!

How to interact with those self-isolating?

YOU need to know who you are dealing with!
People who are self-isolating come into 3 main groups:
RED GROUP - Those who are infected or have been infected by coronavirus/COVID-19
AMBER GROUP - High risk individuals who could possibly develop complications if infected
GREEN GROUP - Those who are not infected and not in the high risk group

Learn how to wash your hands properly.

Hand-washing with soap and water is a much more powerful weapon against the spread of germs than a lot of people think. Coronaviruses including COVID-19 are encased in a lipid envelope - a layer of fat. Soap can break that fat apart and make the virus unable to infect you. The other thing that soap does is make the skin slippery so that with rubbing you can loosen germs off and rinse them away. It is a very simple operation but many people don't get it right. If you can, you may want to pick a liquid or gel over foaming pump soap as foam doesn’t reduce bacteria on the hands as well as washing with a liquid soap. The important thing to remember is to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
