As of mid-March, over 16,000 cases of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, have been reported in Ohio. With schools and businesses closing, along with some states being put on lockdown restrictions, it is certainly an anxious time. For business owners, one of the greatest concerns they face is how to still operate a business without risking spreading the disease further. To provide safe services, you will need a basic knowledge of the facts about COVID-19.
Beyond that, you can make sure your facility is properly cleaned to reduce the risk of spreading SARS-CoV-2, a virus causing COVID-19 as well as germs and bacteria. By hiring the professionals at RestorePro in Sandusky to thoroughly clean and apply professional disinfectant at your commercial property, you can do your part in helping reduce the risk of spreading the Coronavirus and other communicable diseases.
How Does COVID-19 Spread?
COVID-19 can spread in a couple of different ways. The highest risk of spreading the virus is from person-to-person contact. Typically, a person within six feet of a SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19 disease) infected individual is at increased risk of infection. The virus is easily spread through respiratory droplets created during a sneeze or a cough – even when talking we release these droplets. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/transmission.html) Additionally, COVID-19 can spread through touching a contaminated surface. For this reason, it’s always wise to wipe any surfaces down before and after you use them.
What Are The Symptoms?
Knowing the symptoms of COVID-19 is very important. If you are able to know and recognize these symptoms, you will know if you need to quarantine yourself. Being ignorant of these symptoms can lead you to go out into public and unwittingly infect others. The World Health Organization says that the most common symptoms you should be aware of are fever, tiredness and dry cough, and shortness of breath. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, or diarrhea. (https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses#:~:text=symptoms) These symptoms can appear anywhere from 2-14 days after initial exposure. It’s also important to note that the combination of symptoms is different for everyone. Some people may not have a cough even though they are infected. Moreover, there have also been reported cases of infected individuals who did not display any symptoms.
COVID-19 And Social Stigmas
An important discussion surrounding COVID-19 that can easily get brushed to the side is social and racial stigmas stemming from the virus. Unfortunately, stigmas have been attached to those of Asian descent, those who have recently traveled, and emergency responders/healthcare professionals. These stigmas are harmful in all cases and have been known to lead to problems ranging from social rejection to violence. At the end of the day, it’s important that we all come together to work on this problem rather than stigmatizing others.
