Washing face masks reduces their effectiveness.
Don't mix cleaning products or use one after the other. Some are safely mixed...but many aren't.
Fingers or toes bluish? That's likely COVID. Call your doctor.
Don't spray Lysol at living things.
Both liquid and bar soaps are equally effective...if you wash for 20 seconds.
Masks protect you from others much less than they protect others from you.
Too much Zooming giving you dry-eye? Use the vials of eyedrops, not the bottles.
No co-workers to impress? Cut back on daily showers for better skin health.
Avoid runners wearing neck gaiters. Those may spread more virus than no mask at all.
Not all sanitizer is alike. Look for brands with at least 60% alcohol.
Most people touch their faces more than 100 times a day.
If you feel your sense of taste or smell fading, seriously isolate!
Gloves are controversial. Stick to masks, distancing and hand-washing.
Face shields provide added protection, and some people (not us) think they look cool.
Even if you test negative, act as though you have it, if you feel sick.
Refrigerating or freezing food doesn't destroy the virus.
When wearing a mask, careful not to constantly adjust it with your fingers.
Try not to breathe near a public toilet being flushed.
No product on the internet "boosts" your immune system.
Loud places (bars, live music) cause people to talk louder and spread more disease.
There is probably no harm/risk in suppressing your fever with Tylenol or Advil.
The "hold your breath test" might indicate that you DO have it--but not that you DON'T have it.
Overhead fans do nothing, but putting a fan in the window is helpful.
The virus can easily transmit on a shopping cart. Everyone grabs the handlebar.
Taking temperatures at the door is helpful only in addition to other precautions, not instead of them.
The CDC has reduced the recommended self-quarantine period from 14 to 10 days.
Wear glasses instead of contacts for some (small but convenient) added protection.
The virus can live hours on a gas pump handle. They are hard metal...and most are not exposed to sunlight.
Drive your car at least twice a month at highway speeds to prevent brake, tire, and gas tank damage.
No case has yet been attributed to eating infected food.
Masks with fancy valves spread more virus than regular masks--like exhaling through a straw.
Disinfectants have to air-dry. Don't wipe them clean.
Your company may have created an account for you already (probably with your work email address).
