Social Distancing in your Family Apartment

For family apartment dwellers, those with shared spaces, practicing good hygiene can be tricky.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is sweeping the nation, and it is something that we all must be taking very seriously. We’ve been told to wash our hands, practice social distancing, and to spend our time inside our apartments or homes to stop the spread of the virus. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has offered plenty of ways to keep yourself and your family safe. But for family apartment dwellers, those with shared spaces, lobbies, trash chutes, door handles, playgrounds, and mailboxes, keeping safe and practicing good hygiene is a bit more complicated. From your hygiene to how to properly manage your living space, here are all of the best ways to stay safe and improve your health in your family apartment while social distancing.

Wash Your Hands Consistently in your Family Apartment

Wash your hands after you touch someone else or a common surface. Wash your hands in your kitchen before or after you touch or prepare some food. Make sure to wash them after you sneeze, cough, blow your nose, or when you come home after being out in public. It might seem like overkill, but it is necessary. Wash by covering all the surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Rub with soap for at least 20 full seconds. Do this consistently, and you will greatly reduce putting you or your family at risk in your family apartment.

Avoid Close Contact with The Sick

This may seem obvious. But since you never really know who is sick, especially someone living in your building, minimize contact in general. Spread out when you’re walking out to your car or metro station. Touch elbows instead of hand-shaking or fist-bumping, or avoid a handshake altogether. Try to avoid touching common surfaces in public as much as you can. But if you must, just keep your hands away from your face and wash them as soon as possible.

Don’t Touch Your Face outside Your Family Apartment

Speaking of not touching your face, no matter how hard you try, you will touch unsanitary surfaces and people. To prevent yourself from getting sick, do your absolute best to refrain from touching your nose, eyes, or mouth. These are the main entry points for a virus.

These are tough times, and we all must work together to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Make sure to stay inside your family apartment to ensure the virus doesn’t spread any more!
