How often did you wash your hands before the COVID-19 crisis started? You might have felt like you were a fairly cleanly person, but most likely you have stepped things up a little bit after this all began. Since the most likely way that you will get infected is when you are outside of your home, you should get into the habit of washing your hands well with soap and water immediately after you step inside the door of your home. You need to cover every area of your hands well with soap and rub your hands together vigorously. Use water that is as hot as you can handle, and don’t just rush through the cleaning. You also need to clean off any surfaces that you might have touched on your way into your home since a lightswitch or doorknob could keep traces of the virus for several hours after you touched them.
