Safety During The Pandemic
As we progress through the Corona pandemic, we begin to realize the importance of maintaining good hygiene as well as respecting people’s personal space. With the rapid spread of COVID-19, as well as the variants that have followed, we need to ensure that we adhere to the regulations set out as part of the “New Normal”.
It is a trying experience when choosing the best mask to suit your requirements. By doing intensive research into the correct masks for you, it allows for you to have a better understanding of the important aspects to consider for your own protection. The following blog post gives you some key information into what to consider when purchasing masks:
By wearing a mask, you are keeping not only yourself, but those around you safe for the virus transmission. Masks block the particles/droplets you emit when speaking and coughing, from spreading to those around you. The correct masks also protect you from inhaling other people’s droplets when in close proximity to each other. The eMoyo masks are a CE marked mask solution that provides you with up to 89% protection from harmful particles. For more information take a look here:
As much as we are generally sociable people, it is important to maintain a safe distance from each other, to ensure that we keep our colleagues, friends and families safe from the CoronaVirus. As per the World Health Organization, the recommended social distancing space between people is 1 metre as a minimum. However, most countries suggest a minimum of 1.5m between people. By hosting large gatherings, the chances of people breaking social distancing is greater. Gatherings should be done virtually or in small groups.
Washing your Hands and Sanitising
As creatures of habit, keeping up with standard hygiene should be a regular habit, even before the pandemic began. By washing your hands regularly, you are removing any harmful germs that you have picked up from touching contaminated surfaces. Making use of an alcohol based sanitizer of at least 70%, ensures that all germs are killed effectively. By sanitizing regularly, you are assisting in preventing the spread of COVID-19, as well as other flu and viral strains.
With so many false reports circulating, it is important to ensure that you have researched the various options that are available to you. Globally, each country is trying to reach herd immunity targets that will allow them to better manage the spread of the virus.
