Please Continue to Stay Safe

Anastasia by Medline has a face mask that she removed
just to share the message of this post.
Anastasia by Medline is here to remind you to use all necessary precautions to protect yourself from COVID-19:

Wear a mask when out in public and wear it properly by covering your nose and mouth (if it's cloth, wash after wearing it*); wear gloves if possible but do not cross-contaminate, watch what you touch and don't touch your face; use hand sanitizer** when soap and water are not available; practice social distancing; if you do not have to go out, don't. Many government officials want the country to open for the sake of the economy thereby placing more value on money than on people's lives.  Use your common sense and protect yourself by any means necessary! People have died and are still dying as a result of COVID-19.

*Handwash cloth masks after each use with an antibacterial soap (I use Dial), but any soap will do, rinse and hang dry.  If the material will not fade, spray the mask with hydrogen peroxide after washing, and then hang dry.

**If you have access to hand sanitizer, use it after touching foreign objects in public but take care because hand sanitizer is flammable. The best way to clean your hands is with soap and water and lather your hands for 20 seconds or more, preferably more. Use a stylus, a pencil eraser, or another firm instrument to touch public keypads and apply hand sanitizer to the tip of the stylus or eraser.

In addition to all of the above safety measures, I have a routine that I practice upon returning home. I remove my shoes upon entering the house, turn them face down and I spray the soles with Lysol or another disinfectant aerosol spray. I was fortunate to find Family Dollar's brand a couple of weeks ago. I properly remove and discard my gloves in the trash can.  In the utility room at the back door after removing my shoes and gloves, I remove my clothes and place them in the washing machine.  I wash my face and/or shower again. I pray and thank God that what I have done has protected me and my family against this deadly pestilence.

Be safe for yourself and your loved ones.

"People in power are too comfortable with other people's deaths."–Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II.
