The Workers Who Face the Greatest risk of Coronavirus Covid-19

People with jobs that put them in physical contact with many others are at the greatest risk of becoming sick.

From recent studies, health care workers are at the greatest risk of contracting Covid-19. They are near diseases and infections daily. They work near one another and patients. Many are already under quarantine because of exposure to the virus and many do not have access to proper PPE.

Personal care aides and home health aides who work with the elderly are also vulnerable.

School systems are closing. Teachers have more exposure to illnesses and are close to other people.

The risk is not just to those on the front lines. Many people who do service jobs like cashiers and fast-food workers also face higher risks. Many of these workers in low-paying jobs do not have paid sick leave. Many could still go to work sick to not lose income.

This is a hard time for people all over the world. No one knows the cost of the coronavirus to workers. A worldwide downturn in the economy is ahead. Workers in the jobs shown above face the loss of income. The job you have may make it worse for you. The chance you will get the coronavirus is greater than for others.

Do the best you can to follow the guidelines given by people and places you trust.

Covid-19 Myths and Truths. How to stay safe from Coronavirus

Should I change my clothes and shower when I come home from the grocery store?

You should not go outside too often. Keep a safe distance. Wash your hands when your return.

A sneeze or cough from an infected person can propel viral droplets through the air. Most of the droplets will fall to the ground. An expert said, “A droplet that is small enough to float in air for a while also is unlikely to deposit on clothing.”

If somebody sneezes on you, you should go home, change your clothes and take a shower.

Can the virus be in my hair or beard?

You should not worry about contamination of your hair or beard. Droplets than fall on your hair are not likely to infect you. The droplets lose their strength fast.

What happens if you touch your hair or clothing and then touch part or your face? There is little chance that this sequence would make you infected.

How about doing laundry and sorting clothes?

Routine laundry should not cause worry. The clothing of infected people should go through the warmest washer and dryer settings.

If you are in contact with a sick person, wear rubber gloves when cleaning up. Do not shake their bedding and clothing. Leaving the person’s clothing to sit for a while will reduce risk.

How long can the virus remain on fabric and other surfaces?

A study found that the virus can survive up to three days on hard metal surfaces and plastic. It can survive up to 24 hours on cardboard. Experts think that the viral survival time is less on fabric.

Should I worry about picking up the mail, packages or newspapers?

The risk of getting sick from handling mail or packages is low. But do take care. After disposing of packages, wash your hands. If you are worried, let the paper products sit unopened for 24 hours before opening them.

How much should I worry if I go outside to walk the dog or exercise?

Keeping a safe social distance from others removes most of the worry. The life of the virus in the outdoors is much shorter than it is indoors. It is safe to go for a walk and jog and not to worry about the virus in the air. There is no need wash your outdoors clothes right away.

Should remove my shoes and wipe them down?

Although a shoe-free home might be a good idea, shoes are not a common source of the infection. You do not have to clean the soles. You should clean shoes if you have a child who crawls on the floor or if there is sick or allergic person in the house.

Remember the key factors in preventing Covid-19: Maintain social distancing, wash your hands, wear a mask.


How can you prevent Coronavirus Covid-19?

— Keep your hands clean and keep your distance from sick people.

— Stay home if you are sick.

— Unless you are already infected, facemasks will not help.

— Stock up on home supplies, medicine and resources.

— Prepare your family and communicate your plan.

— With children, keep calm and get the flu shot.

— Avoid traveling.

Keep your hands clean and keep your distance from sick people.

Wash your hands. Wet your hands with clean running water. Then lather them with soap. Do not miss the backs of your hands, between your fingers or under your nails

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay away from anyone with flu-like symptoms. The virus seems to spread through droplets in the air from a cough or sneeze.

Stay home if you are sick.

The most common signs of coronavirus are fever and dry cough. After that comes fatigue and shortness of breath. If you have any of these symptoms, make every effort to remain at home.

Unless you are already infected, facemasks will not help.

Facemasks do not do much to protect you. If you are infected, facemasks can help prevent the spread of the virus to other people.

Stock up on home supplies, medicine, food and essential resources.

Experts suggest stocking at least a 30-day supply of any needed medical prescriptions. You should also do the same for household items like food, laundry detergent and diapers.

Prepare your family, and tell others your plan against Covid-19.

Make sure every member of the family is up-to-date on any and all emergency plans.

Be sure to talk to your child’s school. Know what plans there are for any sort of schedule change. If you have elderly parents or relatives make sure you have a plan for caring for them if they get sick.

With children, keep calm and get the flu shot.

Protect your child by doing the same things you would do during cold and flu season. Encourage them to wash their hands and to move away from people who are coughing or sneezing.

Avoid traveling.

The virus is spreading. Even travel within the United States may be a risk. If you are sick, do not travel. Older people, people with weak immune systems and pregnant women should not travel.

Follow this guide carefully in order to prevent catching and spreading Covid-19. Keep you and your family safe from Coronavirus!
