COVID-19 Pandemic & Thanksgiving: How To Disinfect Your Home
Now, more than ever, it’s important to clean and disinfect your home during the current pandemic and cold and flu season as they are all in full swing. Whether you’re planning a quiet, stay-at-home Thanksgiving or enjoying the company of immediate family, there are many extra precautions you can take.
With the flu season upon us, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work, or school, especially when someone is ill.”
Also, the CDC has stated that it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
