Masks with fancy valves spread more virus than regular masks--like exhaling through a straw.
Loud places (bars, live music) cause people to talk louder and spread more disease.
Face shields provide added protection, and some people (not us) think they look cool.

No co-workers to impress? Cut back on daily showers for better skin health.
Gloves are controversial. Stick to masks, distancing and hand-washing.
Masks protect you from others much less than they protect others from you.
No product on the internet "boosts" your immune system.
Don't mix cleaning products or use one after the other. Some are safely mixed...but many aren't.

When wearing a mask, careful not to constantly adjust it with your fingers.
Washing face masks reduces their effectiveness.
Overhead fans do nothing, but putting a fan in the window is helpful.

Drive your car at least twice a month at highway speeds to prevent brake, tire, and gas tank damage.
Fingers or toes bluish? That's likely COVID. Call your doctor.
The "hold your breath test" might indicate that you DO have it--but not that you DON'T have it.
