Why Getting Fresh Air Indoors is Critical During This Crisis

Research is now showing that Coronavirus may be airborne indoors. How should you protect yourself from a virus that may be floating indoors?  Avoid the 3 Cs:  (1) Closed and poorly ventilated spaces, (2) Crowds, and (3) Close contact. And increase ventilation!  

Not only is fresh air a “natural disinfectant” but it can also help to dilute virus-carrying particulates. It can also help to keep you from feeling “foggy” and the house from feeling “stuffy.” Opening your windows is one of the easiest things you can do to keep your home and family healthy.

Indoor Exposures Can Cause Health Symptoms

Staying at home has presented families with lots of challenges – but have you considered that experiencing health symptoms (not related to COVID-19) may be one of them? Extended exposure to the changing environment inside your home (like higher CO2 levels or more chemicals from increased cleaning) can cause you or family members not to feel well at home. Consider what might be impacting how you feel at home.  NOTE: COVID-19 is an emergent and evolving health issue; as new research is done symptoms associated with COVID-19 may change. This information is not a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional.

Hayward Score Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The COVID-19 virus has many similarities with the other corona-type viruses, plus those for the common cold and the flu. Therefore, routine preventive measures for those also apply to COVID-19. However, COVID-19 also has critically important differences.

The COVID-19 pandemic is at the top of everyone’s mind, both by public health mandate and for personal survival.
