As we head into 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, making it vital for you to take precautions regarding germs and stopping the spread. By now, we all used to wearing masks and standing six feet apart to minimize the virus in Pennsylvania. While close contact with other individuals is the easiest way to catch COVID-19, it isn’t the only transmission method.
Coronavirus can also be caught by touching an object or surface that has active virus particles on it. Cleaning high-touch surfaces paired with disinfecting these surfaces is crucial to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses in communities and homes.
Coronavirus & Surfaces: What is the Risk?
During the early days of coronavirus, it was originally thought that touching infected surfaces was a high-risk activity for catching the virus. Since then, the CDC has updated its website saying touching surfaces is not the leading way to catch the virus. However, it is still vital that you know there is still a chance to catch COVID-19 by touching dirty surfaces and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Be mindful of your actions when out in public, and remember to wash your hands frequently.
How to Avoid COVID-19 at Home
There are several ways you can avoid COVID-19 at home. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face is one step. It is also essential to disinfect surfaces, especially those considered high-touch, including door knobs, light switches, countertops, and handles. While disinfecting surfaces is important, it can be detrimental if the cleaners are significantly harsh.
Chemicals like bleach kill germs and viruses, but they also offer health risks you may not be aware of because of the residue they lean behind on surfaces. This residue and harsh odors can cause harmful pollutants in the air you breathe and make you sick. As more research becomes available, more cleaners and disinfectants have come to the market that offers the same cleaning benefits with fewer harsh side effects.
