Quick Ways to Minimize COVID-19 Risk

Following just a few simple steps can greatly reduce your coronavirus risk


During a pandemic like COVID-19, it's crucial to understand how managing your indoor air quality can minimize the risk of infection. Unfortunately, solutions requiring a long-term time investment are not always possible. What's most important is doing the little things, quickly and easily, that together go a long way to prevent you from getting infected with the coronavirus, not to mention other infectious diseases.

At CareTac, our main concern is that people live in healthy environments and receive the most relevant and accurate information to do so. That's why we consider the following recommendations, easy to follow and stick to, to be a step that will go a long way in ensuring optimal air quality while minimizing infectious disease risks.

How to minimize the coronavirus infection risk:

  • Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water

  • Keep your indoor humidity levels at 40 to 60%. When your air is too dry, it allows infection particles to remain afloat for longer and to penetrate deeper into the lungs when inhaled.

  • Increase the amount of indoor/outdoor air exchange

  • Allow for as much natural sunlight as possible to enter your home or building.

  • If someone is infected or shows symptoms, isolate them in a separate room, preferably one attached to a bathroom. Bathrooms with separate running exhaust systems will ventilate infectious particles out of the house, thus minimizing further infection risk for other occupants

In short, take the proper precautions, be smart, and don't panic. By following this advice, you will ensure your health and well-being.
