Although the gravity of the coronavirus as a threat to our health is unclear, taking everyday precautions to reduce the spread of infections in all forms is perpetually beneficial. Here are some unexpected tips to consider.
• Cellphones carry the most germs and bacteria you encounter daily, so be sure to wipe yours down with disinfectant.
• Face masks are only necessary if you’ve contracted an infection or experience flu-like symptoms.
• When flying, be sure to keep air vents open. The plane’s ventilation system reduces the risk of contracting an airborne virus or illness.
