Many people in our Fresno Community live in multi-generational households, often with limited space. COVID-19 poses an even greater threat to those of us living in close quarters. Here are some steps from the CDC you can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within your own home.
Staying Safe Inside:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash with soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Limit trips out of the house. If you must leave the household, wear a mask, and stay at least 6 feet, or about two arms’ lengths, away from others.
- Avoid having visitors (anyone who does not live with you) inside your household. This may be difficult given most communities are close knit and people visit each other often, but it helps reduce the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. If people must visit, visitors should wear masks and stay outside, if possible, while keeping at least 6 feet distance.
If one of your family members is at greater risk due to being an elder or having an underlying health condition, all family members should act as though they are at greater risk.
