Coronavirus Precautions from the Pharmacist
Our Customers Asked:
What can I do to avoid catching Coronavirus, and what do I do if I feel a little bit sick?
Our Experts Answered:
STEP ONE – WASH/SANITIZE YOUR HANDS
STEP TWO: REVITALIZE DRY HANDS
Along with the fact that you’re gonna be washing your hands a ton or using hand sanitizer, you’re gonna be drying your hands out a lot. It happens naturally when you strip moisture from your skin. You’re going to want to use a hand cream or a hand lotion afterwards. I recommend our Chapped Hands Remedy or our Lemon Hand Treatment, but really any hydrating hand cream of your choice will work. Always keep it with your hand sanitizer in your bag, and apply after you sanitize or wash. Our pocket-size Lemon Hand Treatment (1 oz) is great for on-the-go usage!
STEP THREE: STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
STEP FOUR: SOOTHE YOUR SYMPTOMS
STEP FIVE: DON’T WORRY ABOUT MASKS!
We do want to add one last thing about these Surgical and N-95 masks that you’ve been seeing on the news. We are sold out right now, and we’re not sure when we’ll get them back in stock, but if you’ve been searching for one and cannot find one, do not panic! Masks are probably the least important thing that should be on your mind right now. They’re only useful for preventing the virus from spreading around to other people if you already have it. Since COVID-19 spreads through air droplets or coughing, if you have the virus, you would wear it to prevent it from getting out into the air. However, if you’re healthy, it’s not filtering all the air that you’re breathing in. Therefore, while it may do a little bit for you, it’s no reason to stress if you can’t find one for yourself.
