Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

MOLD

Mold can grow on almost any food at any storage temperature and under any conditions. Freezing prevents the growth of mold but won’t kill any mold cells already in the food. The mold that you see on food isn’t the only mold that’s there. If it creates poisons, they’re generally under the surface of the food. Mold can be thought of like a plant. The part you can see is like the flower. Underneath that are roots inside the food that can make it unsafe. The softer the food, the further into the food the mold is likely to spread. Does all moldy food have to be thrown out? Some hard cheeses and hard salami can be saved, if you can cut out the mold at least one inch around and under it. However, it is encouraged that all moldy foods are thrown away. At NHI “We are the people who care, and it shows!” www.nhihealthcare.com
