Staying Safe During Covid-19

How do Termite Controllers Work During Covid-19?

 

Good personal hygiene is important for slowing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). All people should be taking the following personal hygiene actions :

  • Wash your hands all the time
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds, using soap and water or use a hand sanitiser that contains at least 70 percent alcohol.
  • Wash your hands when you get home, arrive at other peoples homes, at venues and at work.
  • Wash your hands after touching or blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing, or using any toilet.

Do not cough or sneeze into your hands

  • Cover your nose or mouth with a tissue, then throw it away and wash your hands well.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or upper sleeve.
  • Avoid hand touching of your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed or sanitised hands.
  • Best not share drink bottles, glasses, plates, bowls or cutlery other than with people you share o home with.

Seek more information –

  • For more information on staying safe while caring for an unwell family member or loved one.
  • For more information for people who are elderly, have a chronic illness, who are health compromised.
  • See your doctor or GP for more advice.

Keep your distance – stay 1.5 to 2 meters away from people you don’t share a home with

  • Meet people with a smile or wave – don’t shake hands, hug or kiss when saying hello.
  • Stay 1.5 to 2 meters away from people you don’t live with.
  • Avoid large crowds, especially indoor environments.
  • Waiting in line or walking through busy areas give plenty of space.

Stay healthy at all times –

  • Keep eating a well-balanced diet with vitamins and minerals.
  • always get regular exercise and sleep.
  • Reduce your alcohol intake to zero.
  • If you’re a cigarette smoker, quit for your health and family.
  • Get a vaccination for the flu (influenza). This can help reduce the workload on the hospital systems, as it deals with ‘cyrus the virus’ (COVID-19).

Stay connected with the news and help to support your elderly

It is very important to keep connected with the latest news as a community, always while physically distancing.

  • If you or a loved one is feeling unwell or nervous at this time, help and support is available.
  • Where possible, keep connected to your family, friends and work mates through hand written letters, phone, email.
