How You Can Do Your Part During the Coronavirus Crisis

Posted by Booth Medical on Apr 20 2020

During these trying times, it can be hard to figure out how to do your part during coronavirus. But it's important to stay in good spirits and help others in any way we can. Here’s what you can do during this challenging time.

For the general public:

Stay informed and make sure you're abiding by the laws in your part of the country. This includes minimizing outings, wearing a mask, and staying six feet away from others when you're in public. Also, wash your hands every time you get home- 20 seconds is the key time here.

Help essential workers in any way you can. Everyone who works in grocery stores, restaurants, the sanitation industry, and healthcare are put at risk right now to help others. It might seem like an impossible feat, but there are actually a few things you can do to make their lives a little easier. First, let essential workers know you're thankful for everything they're doing. It's simple but it means a lot. If you have the means to do so, donate to organizations like Direct Relief that provide needed equipment and medical tools to healthcare workers. You can also help by ordering meals to be delivered to give them much-needed energy while they're working long shifts.

For healthcare workers:

When you aren’t given adequate supplies, it can be difficult to do your jobs. Luckily, there are tools you can use to disinfect masks and other tools healthcare workers need. The RH-N95 Sterilizer is one way to decontaminate N95 masks, and it's FDA-approved. No matter your situation, thank you for everything you're doing to treat and support us. We're so grateful for the crucial, brave work you're doing.

Most importantly:

Stay home! Social distancing is a challenge for all, but it’s essential for the health of everyone. This should be your top priority (if you're not an essential worker) when it comes to stopping the spread of this virus. It will especially help reduce the difficulties healthcare workers are experiencing. Let’s do our part to help others and get through this difficult time.
