Clean, Screen & Protect
With the outbreak of Covid-19, everyone’s lives have changed from small imperceptible ways to paradigm shifts in the way we work, socialise and live. Still, as long as we keep up with precautionary measures and self-monitoring, it’s no reason for us to miss out on various aspects of our lives in the past. As long as we all do our part, we can help protect ourselves and others in the community. Here are some ways you can stay at the top of your game during this time!

1. Clean
It goes without saying that maintaining good hygiene habits and cleanliness is one of the most effective ways to safeguard yourself. Bring hand sanitisers with you at all times and regularly sanitise your personal belongings, particularly those that come into close contact with your face, such as your handphones, spectacles and more. A UV Box may come in handy in this case if you want to ensure your personal belongings are free from germs and viruses.
2. Screen
The challenge Is always in identifying the symptoms of Covid-19. It’s not that there are no symptoms, but that the symptoms are not distinct and may often be neglected. Fever, cough, and other respiratory symptoms are commonplace illnesses that affect us from time to time, and that’s why it’s easy to overlook them. Make it a habit to monitor your daily body temperature and monitor yourselves for small symptoms. If in doubt, always seek medical advice immediately and stay home if you suspect that you might be ill.
3. Protect
We must continue to go about certain day-to-day activities, such as grocery shopping, purchasing daily necessities, exercising and more. So while these are unavoidable tasks, we can step up on our own protection to keep ourselves safe. Always mask up before heading out, but don’t forget to check the integrity of your masks before you do so. Disposable surgical masks must be replaced regularly while reusable masks should be washed gently to ensure high filtration efficiency!
