 CDC advice:  Clean your hands often


  • 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 70% 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.

Minimize trips to crowded, germ filled grocery stores whenever possible.  Try to shop at smaller health food stores with fewer customers. 


  Wipe shopping cart handles with antibacterial wipes, and take a piece of saran wrap with you.  Wrap the handle of the cart and discard before leaving the store.  

Shop online early

Shop smart and shop online early.  Price gouging is only going to intensify.  Look for low cost items from a wide variety of different online retailers.


Order online and stock up on Lysol spray, liquid antibacterial soap (look for the word antibacterial) bleach, antibacterial sprays, wipes, toilet paper, and paper towels.

At times like these when public sporting events are being cancelled and schools are closing, it's easy to just sit on the couch and push exercise and movement to the back burner.  


You can keep engaging in stress reducing exercise but still avoid crowded germy gyms and sweaty team sports.  Look for new options and don't give up!

 Make certain that your hand sanitizer  contains at least 70% isopropyl alcohol.  Some of the hand sanitizers made by the brands Purell and Germ-X rely on benzalkonium chloride instead of alcohol as the active ingredient. 


Do not dilute the alcohol solution.    Don't try to make a homemade version.   Not only can you hurt yourself, but it could give you a false sense of security.

At times like these, look for organic food companies that provide fresh nutrient rich options.  Many supplement companies outsource from overseas where regulations and sanitary conditions are questionable.  


We like to buy from local growers when possible and help support our local economy.

helpful cdc advice

 Clean AND disinfect  frequently touched surfaces  daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.


  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.


To disinfect:
Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work. Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.


Options include:

  • Diluting your household bleach.
    To make a bleach solution, mix:
    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water
      OR
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
    • Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
  • Alcohol solutions.
    Ensure solution has at least 70% alcohol.
