Basic Tips for Fighting COVID-19 at Work

Date Created: 11/03/2020

The level to which we have been bombarded about COVID-19 is getting so mind-blowing. Daily info and news are so much, that if you want to avoid hearing about it and its daily brand new, fresh ‘victims’ you’ve got absolutely zero chances. However, the most annoying thing about it is the fact that there is this continuous talk about whether this virus is that harmful or just another subject of discussion. It just can’t let you pick between caring and not caring.

Whatever the case may be, life is just too precious. No, no don’t worry; this article isn’t getting too serious. Life is just too precious to stay at home, skip work, (ok, this isn’t so bad) and miss experiences and fun times that could be stories to tell your grandkids. 

Since you’re in charge of everything that goes on at home, it’s much easier to be protected by simply keeping yourself, your close ones, and your pets healthy. The toughest mission comes when you’re incapable of avoiding yucky handshakes and face-to-face talking with people at work.

So, although this whole situation looks like a living nightmare, here are some easy steps to help you exclude your name from being grouped in those daily-growing numbers of “contaminated” names. It’s positive that no one needs to visit a doctor before things go wrong.


  • Keep your workplace clean 

Since there are objects you can keep clean just by using some elementary practices, this is where it all starts. Clean your office desk, your cellphone and your keyboard with an alcohol-based disinfectant liquid at least once a day and wash your hands with soap and warm water as regularly and as thoroughly as you can. 

Oh, and don’t forget to also convince other people to follow these rules too!

Use professionals for disinfection 

  • It comes to cleaning up places where a lot of people regularly gather; places like schools, businesses, and homes, professional help is what’s most effective. Some companies specialize in this. Since every business must disinfect their premises and their offices at least once a month, the timing now feels more than right. So, hire a group of experienced people and let them do the job for you.
  • Seek medical care early

In case you wake up one morning and your body is giving you the message that something is not going so well, do yourself a favor and please stay at home. Fever, cough, fatigue, and difficulty in breathing mean that medical attention is definitely in need. As soon as any of those symptoms arrive, give your local authority a call and follow some easy instructions.


  • Practice respiratory hygiene

The easiest thing you can do when it comes to coughing or sneezing is making sure that you and the people around you follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow or a tissue, and then disposing of the used tissue at once. Unless things go too far here, this step isn’t rocket science.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Because hands are usually the part of your body that touches many surfaces; they are responsible for picking up viruses. Once contaminated, they can easily transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth which then can enter your body and make you sick. There’s no doubt that it’s difficult to keep at the back of your head not to touch your face, but you have to try as hard as you can.

  • Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1-meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.  

Oh, and one last thing; please be patient and remain calm if you catch COVID-19; if you are not facing health issues related to the respiratory system you have nothing to fear.

Hopefully, we’ll get over this soon!
