How to Avoid Coronavirus and Still Get Your Medical Cannabis

We, along with the majority of people in America, have been hyper-focused on how to avoid Coronavirus illnesses over the past two months.  The bulk of the CDC guidelines surround easy suggestions that anyone can follow.  Here is a breakdown of things you can do today to avoid coronavirus.

Know how the virus spreads is key when trying to avoid coronavirus.

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
    • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
    • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid Coronavirus
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Put distance between yourself and other people.
  • Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
  • Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Avoid Coronavirus
  • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
  • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public.
  • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
  • Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
Avoid Coronavirus
  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid Coronavirus
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.  To make a bleach solution, mix 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water.  For alcohol solutions, ensure solution has at least 70% alcohol.  Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against COVID-19.
