As the country begins to slowly reopen and people are beginning to start going outside, many people are wondering what are the preventative measures that should be taken to avoid coronavirus infection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has prompted the public with a new announcement of what everyone should take with them if they are deciding to go outside. According to a new post on the CDC website, the CDC recommends everyone to have a cloth face covering, hand sanitizer that's made with at least 60% alcohol, and tissues on hand.
The CDC's most recent recommendations haven't really changed much since April, the only really new recommendation is tissues. So why tissues? Tissues provide a layer of protection for a person that has to touch a surface that could have infectious droplets on it, e.g. public toilet doors and commonly touched surfaces. Tissues can also stop the spread of the virus by covering a person's face when they need to sneeze or cough. Of course, these three items alone won't guarantee you 100% protection, but when used in conjunction with social distancing measures, you have a minimal chance of contraction.
