Brundageba Posted March 29, 2020 Share Posted March 29, 2020 (edited) DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE WITHOUT HAND WASHING...be mindful of habits OK so the wind is blowing, my hair is in my eyes and I have allergies and my nose is running. ( I am in my own back yard) I realize how MANY times I have touched my face...nose, eyes. LOTS. I have a habit. I rub my nose. I can not stop even though I try. Now at this point of the COVID infection , we must just cover the face. Pick: fancy mask, bandana... put something over your face. The masks move and are a potential for self infection if loose , mis-fitting or manipulated. TEE SHIRT STRIPS. This works real well and for short term use works fine according to what I had read in medical literature. Take a tee. cut the body across in 6-8 inch strips. Cut one end. So now you have a long 8 inch wide strip. Take that and place over nose and mouth and tie behind the head,. You can double the layer. Experiment. Keeps the hair outta the eyes and hand off your face. It is much better than a mask that is half on or manipulated ( I see that an awful lot) I saw a show yesterday . It was an interview with an ER doc in N.Y. That was the exact message he gave. "Chances are slim you will get this, IF you don't touch your face, frequent hand washing....stop smoking "( hand to mouth) Say it again: AVOID HAND TO FACE CONTACT WHEN OUT SHOPPING This is war.....we will win and have one helluvah party ! ALISON PLEASE PLEASE help others to learn how to handle this. IF you see something say something. I gave the "don't touch your face" speech more times than I can count to a man servicing the cash register at a busy store. Interesting because we were talking about the value of a mask. I told him what I just told you. In that time, he tweaked his nose with his finger at least 5 times. Each time Bill and I said in UNISION ......"Dont touch your face" ( he was NOT aware he was doing it..its a habit HE has an he's not aware he is doing it..like me) Next week we saw him using a mask. Alcohol and hand sanitizer is hard to find now. Put a wash cloth soaked in Clorox solution.inside ziplocks (.I doubt you need 100%...just a solution) Use that for your hands a/o surfaces. Pack a few...off ya go ! When you get home...take care of the hands...hand creme. Edited March 29, 2020 by Brundageba 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
