Smart Ways to Protect Your Home From COVID-19

The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has created uncertainty and upheaval in our daily lives throughout the nation and the world. The mantra of “social distancing” means that many of us will find ourselves limiting activities like work, shopping, school, and social events, and instead spending more time in our homes for several weeks, perhaps longer.

Our homes are our ultimate safe refuge. So it makes sense to ensure that they are equipped and prepared to provide us with the most hygienic, germ- and virus-free environment possible. To achieve this goal, we can take some concrete steps. Some are simple, common-sense preventative measures. Others involve making smart investments in our homes that will make them a safer place now and in the future.

SEEK OUT ACCURATE INFORMATION

In the fight against COVID-19, knowledge is power. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get incorrect information through social media and unreliable sources of news and information. Educate yourself about COVID-19 and keep up with the latest reliable information by accessing these websites. Bookmark them so you’ll always have accurate information on local, national, and international news about the progress of the disease.

Texas Health and Human Services

This website has information on the spread of COVID-19 in Texas, and provides basic information on preventative measures you can take to limit the spread of the virus. This will provide you with a useful local perspective on virus-related news.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The CDC website is an extremely useful resource for information about the COVID-19 outbreak. It includes regularly updated news briefs, information on preventing illness and what to do if you’re sick, plus information on protecting homes, schools, workplaces, and community locations.

John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center

An excellent resource, with plenty of basic and advanced information on the COVID-19 virus. It is also home to the COVID-19 Interactive Map, which lets you examine the spread of the disease from the state level to worldwide.

PRACTICAL STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR HOME

Some of the best ways to protect your home and your family are some of the simplest. Here are steps suggested by health authorities that are both effective and easy to implement.

Clean

  • Keeping our homes clean is a basic part of disease mitigation. While cleaning does not kill viruses, regular cleaning tasks like dusting, vacuuming, and sweeping eliminates dirt and impurities that can harbor germs and viruses.

Disinfect

  • Disinfecting is the next step beyond cleaning. Disinfecting kills germs and viruses that adhere to surfaces in our home. Frequently disinfect surfaces that you come into contact with regularly, such as faucets, kitchen work surfaces, light switches, doorknobs, computer keyboards and mice, remote controls, and more.

Isolate

  • If you suspect someone in your home is ill with the COVID-19 virus, consult with your doctor. In most cases, they can be treated safely at home, and should not leave unless necessary. Consult this guide if you suspect a case in your family.

The first two of these steps, cleaning and disinfecting, are excellent habits to develop in your home. A clean home whose frequently touched surfaces are disinfected regularly is a healthier home. You’ll protect yourself and your family not only from COVID-19 but from many common illnesses, like colds and flu, by performing those steps. To learn more about, consult this excellent resource from the CDC.
