We really don’t know how long this new routine will be with us, but most of us seem to understand that, for right now, for us regular-type folks, it’s simply about slowing things down. Anything we can do to slow the spread of COVID-19 will help.
I can do that. You can do that. Everyone can help. All we need to do are the basics:
Wash your hands—Soap and hot (not too hot!) water work best, but if you’re not near water, use alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer.
Don’t touch your face—Not your mouth, not your nose, and not your eyes.
Keep a distance of six feet from others—Imagine two yardsticks laid end-to-end or, if your mom or dad or brother or sister happen to be about six feet tall, imagine that they were lying down between you and other people.
Pat your dog—Okay, this is really from Mercy, but she has a point. Not only are dogs soft and not contagious, but patting them makes you feel better. (Patting also makes them feel better!)
Take good care of yourself and your family. Look out for others. And laugh every day.
