No nearby co-workers to impress? Cut back on daily showers for better skin health.
Taking temperatures at the door is helpful only in addition to other precautions, not instead of them.
When wearing a mask, careful not to constantly adjust it with your fingers.
The "hold your breath test" might indicate that you DO have it--but not that you DON'T have it.
The virus can live hours on a gas pump handle. They are hard metal...and most are not exposed to sunlight.
Wear glasses instead of contacts for some (small but convenient) added protection.
Too much Zooming giving you dry-eye? Use the vials of eyedrops, not the bottles.
Disinfectants have to air-dry. Don't wipe them clean.
Overhead fans do nothing, but putting a fan in the window is helpful.
Don't mix cleaning products or use one after the other. Some are safely mixed...but many aren't.
Washing face masks reduces their effectiveness.
Refrigerating or freezing food doesn't destroy the virus.
Face shields provide added protection, and some people (not us) think they look cool.
Masks with fancy valves spread more virus than regular masks--like exhaling through a straw.
Try not to breathe near a public toilet being flushed.
Unlikely, but the virus can transmit on a shopping cart. Everyone grabs the handlebar.

Masks protect you from others much less than they protect others from you.
Most people touch their faces more than 100 times a day.
If you feel your sense of taste or smell fading, seriously isolate!
Not all sanitizer is alike. Look for brands with at least 60% alcohol.
Fingers or toes bluish? That's likely COVID. Call your doctor.
Both liquid and bar soaps are equally effective...if you wash for 20 seconds.
Loud places (bars, live music) cause people to talk louder and spread more disease.
Working at home? Drive your car weekly at highway speeds anyway, to prevent damage to brakes, fuel lines and tires.
Your company may have created an account for you already (probably with your work email address).
If we have it, we will email you a login link.
