These are unprecedented times: the coronavirus is unknown, many are getting infected, and the worst part of all is lives are lost. Covid-19 has caused many families to suffer, and it is no joke that we need to do whatever we can to help stop corona from spreading. Even though it is a serious threat, we can not close down businesses forever, as people are losing their jobs and can not provide for their families, something which is equally as dreadful to all who are getting infected from the virus.
There are many ways we can continue our daily lives without losing essential business, such as your local dentist office. According to the CDC, the best way to prevent Covid-19 from entering into your lungs is by wearing a mask whenever you leave your home. When coming for your dental visit, be sure to wear a mask and a pair of gloves before entry. Another way to prevent the contraction of the virus is by limiting the number of times your touch foreign objects and non-needed items. Even though you will be wearing gloves, the Coronavirus can still contract onto your clothes, without you even knowing. This will help to ensure that there is a slim to none chance the virus can come home and affect you and your loved ones. Finally, once you leave the dentist’s office, be sure to not shake hands with anyone, even your dentist, as any of you can be possible carriers of the virus. It can happen out of habit, of course, but reminding yourself that handshaking is an extremely big threat to getting the virus will help to ensure you stop yourself before it is too late. After coming home, make sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water for a good 20 seconds. Washing your clothes and everything you wore
While the Coronavirus has caused us to adapt to a new way of life, we can minimize the chance of contracting the virus by following small yet impactful steps. We hope you stay safe and that these steps help to ensure that you and your loved ones are protected.
