Good Hygiene Practices During Covid-19 Situation
Coronavirus Disease 2019 has caused a great disruption to the World's economy and affected the way of working for every one of us. While we are approaching towards end of Y2020, there is still no indication when this Coronavirus situation will die down. Many countries are still seeing an increasing number of positive cases and some countries are seeing a second wave of resurgence upon reopening the economy.
Good hygiene practices have become the best prevention to protect your love ones from the virus infection and ensure everyone stays healthy & happy. Let's continue to implement these good hygiene practices & control measures to keep our love ones healthy while we count down Y2020 and welcome a better Y2021!
1) Carry out regular health checks and temperature screening for your children and yourself to detect any fever or symptoms of flu, sore throat or upper respiratory tract infection.
2) When your child or any family member is found having fever or symptoms of infection, it is advisable to see a doctor immediately. Wear a mask when going to the clinic. Other than seeing doctor, anyone who is not feeling well should stay at home and refrain from going out until they are fully recovered.
3) Wash hands frequently with soap, especially before eating or handling food, after toilet visits, or when hands are dirtied after coughing or sneezing.
4) Have children cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing, and throw away the tissue immediately into a bin.
5) Not to share food/ drinks, eating utensils, toothbrushes or towels with others.
6) Refrain from touching exposed body parts such as eyes, nose, face and arms with unwashed hands.
7) Sanitise your hands after contact with frequently touched areas such as door knobs, handrails, lift button etc.
8) Clean and disinfect your home regularly, especially the floor, table top, children's toys and accessories.
9) Keep all rooms well-ventilated; open windows to allow plenty of fresh air into the indoor environment, where possible.
10) Last but not least, eat healthy with a balance diet, drink enough water, and stay active by doing indoor exercise if outdoor activity is not possible.
Let's continue to keep ourselves and our love ones safe and healthy!
