The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), lists things we can do to be safer against COVID-19:

😷  WEAR A MASK CORRECTLY OVER YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH 😷
  • Wear a mask, especially in public settings, to help keep from getting and spreading COVID-19
  • Remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow

 

⬅️  SOCIAL DISTANCING ➡️

  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you and others, especially for people who are at increased risk for severe illness
  • Indoor spaces are more risky than outdoor spaces where there’s less ventilation

👏  WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN 👏

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer, such as Lifebuoy Hand Sanitizer, that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not readily available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth if you haven’t washed your hands

 

💦 CLEAN & DISINFECT FREQUENTLY TOUCHED SURFACES AND OBJECTS 💦

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, like workstations, keyboards, telephones, etc.
  • Use chemical disinfectants, such as Domex Multi-Surface Spray Bleach, safely! Always read and follow the directions on the label of cleaning and disinfection products to ensure safe and effective use

 

 

 

Additionally, the CDC also advises to use delivery services, like LOOPY, when possible. The risk of infection by the virus from food products, food packaging, or bags is thought to be very low. Currently, no cases of COVID-19 have been identified where infection was thought to have occurred by touching food, food packaging, or shopping bags. 

 

📱 ORDER ONLINE OR USE CURBSIDE PICKUP 📱

  • If possible, limit visiting stores in person to avoid crowds
  • Order groceries and other items online for home delivery or curbside pickup

 

📦 HANDLING PACKAGED FOOD 📦

  • Do NOT use disinfectants designed for hard surfaces, such as bleach or ammonia, on food packaged in cardboard or plastic wrap. They may not be food safe
  • After unpacking groceries, wash your hands
  • Regularly clean and disinfect kitchen counters 

🙅‍♂️ LIMIT IN-PERSON CONTACT 🙅

  • Pay online when you order. LOOPY offers several payment methods (Visa, Mastercard, Gcash) to make shopping as easy as possible!
  • Accept deliveries without in-person contact whenever possible
  • Ask for deliveries to be left in a safe spot outside your house, with no person-to-person interaction
