The COVID-19 outbreak has rapidly spread throughout the world, forcing people everywhere to take extra precautionary measures to do their part to help in preventing the spread. For people living inside apartments, there are specific steps that you can take to ensure the safety of yourself as well as your fellow neighbors. Take a moment to read how you can do your part in helping your building in protecting itself against the deadly virus. Here’s some of the best safety tips for apartment renters during this Coronavirus pandemic.
Take the Apartment Stairs
You’ve heard the importance of social distancing and have hopefully been proactive in minimizing your contact with others. The current recommendation is to stand at least six feet away from others to reduce your chance of catching the virus. In apartment complexes, there is a good chance the elevator access is the preferred option for getting to rooms. However, consider using the stairs if you are an apartment renter. Using the stairs will give you more space from other tenants, as well as extra steps and exercise when you might have additional downtime.
Help Out Your Elderly Apartment Renters
The older population has been affected by COVID-19 the worst out of any age group. Due to weakened immune systems, the older residents and apartment renters must take extra precautions to protect themselves from contracting this deadly virus. If you are younger and healthier and share an apartment building with anyone older, offer to do their grocery shopping or grab their mail for them. Make sure to properly wash your hands before interacting with your neighbors, old or young.
Take Care of Your Furry Friends
Among some of the very disheartening news related to this pandemic, the World Health Organization has released that there is currently no hard evidence that the Coronavirus can be spread to or from cats, dogs, and other household pets. If you are a fortunate enough apartment renter that is allowed to have pets, ensure that you’ve got a proper plan in place in case someone in your apartment falls ill. Check up on their vaccinations, buy them some extra food, and have an emergency contact for them just in case you get sick and have to self-isolate.
Clean Your Apartment
One of the best things to do right now, and just in general, is cleaning your apartment. Take some time to scrub every single home appliance that you might think is dirty. This includes doorknobs, balcony railings, and other pieces of common furniture.
Be Smart Apartment Renters
During these uncertain times, it’s a good idea to be extra cautious and wise about where you go, and what you do. Think twice before you touch your face, or even leave your house for non-essentials.
