Staying safe during this period is all about social distancing and self-isolation. However, there will be occasions when you must head out of your home. It might be to get some necessities or to perform a quick errand.

Helpful Tips To Follow

Here are some of George Darte Funeral Home's top tips for staying safe in public spaces during the pandemic:

  • You must keep a distance of about 6 feet from people around you.
  • If possible, avoid restricted environments such as tiny rooms or busy elevators since you may unknowingly inhale the virus.
  • When individuals are out, it is typical to touch doorknobs, railings, merchandise, and credit cards. Keeping your hands away from the face, nose, and eyes decrease the likelihood of the virus entering your system.
  • When going out, always wear a mask, whether or not you have a cough or a cold. While there is no convincing evidence that masks protect against the COVID-19 virus, they may help to slow its transmission.
  • Even if stepping out of your home, you must clean your hands well. Wash them for at least 20 seconds several times every day. Always wash your hands before leaving the house or returning home after running errands. It is preferable to use a standard hand wash instead of a hand sanitizer. The former is more efficient.
  • You may bring a sanitizer with you whenever you go out and use it if you touch any surfaces or items.

Follow these guidelines regardless of the number of people around you in a public location; it's always best to be safe than sorry. For more details, please call George Darte Funeral Home at 905-937-4444 or use our contact form. One of our team members will call you shortly to answer your queries.
