Oregon has started the first phase of re-opening businesses after the stay at home order from Governor Kate Brown. While it may seem like we can just jump back into everyday life, as it was pre-COVID 19, we still need to be very cautious to prevent a rise in the numbers again, here are some steps you can take to keep yourself and others in the community safe.
Wash Hands- Wash hands often: after every public place you go, once you get home, before and after touching face, and of course after using the restroom.
Wear a Mask- Continue to wear a mask in public, and if you have not, considered purchasing one and carry it on you in your car or purse at all times.
Order out- While some restaurants are opening up back up with some restrictions, make sure not to be cautious. If possible, call and order to pick-up and take home, or have delivered. This way you can still support your favorite eateries, while staying cautious.
When in Doubt- Stay Home. Don’t feel bad for saying no to invites out for food and drinks with friends if you don’t feel comfortable just yet. Better safe and healthy than sorry.
Shopping- As with the restaurants, you can order and pay for things at your favorite stores, and do a quick pick-up. You can call them up and see what options they have, so you don’t have to linger too long inside stores if you are still worried about being in public around people.
While sanitizing and washing is important to help prevent the spread of any virus, you should also be eating beneficial, immune-boosting foods daily to help fight off anything that may enter your body.
Immune Boosting Foods-
Citrus- Any citrus, such as: oranges, lemons, and grapefruit are packed full of Vitamin C and works wonders for the immune system.
Fruits & Vegetables- Include the following into your daily diet: Red bell peppers, Broccoli, Garlic, Spinach, Ginger, Kiwi, Papaya.
You can also sip Green Tea, and snack on yogurt and nuts for extra beneficial vitamins and nutrients that the body needs.
At the end of the day, we are all in this together, so we need to help each other out to get past this and keep ourselves and those around us safe and healthy.
