We have – repeatedly – been through the ways that you can avoid infection and avoid infecting others with Covid-19, but there always seems to be some
good reason silly excuse which means that you can’t follow through and actually do them, doesn’t there?
Wash your hands regularly
But my hands get so dry.
I have very sensitive skin, see? I get it from my mother’s side.
Wear a mask
It’s so hard to breath through a mask though, isn’t it?
And the rebreathing of all the carbon monoxide. So dangerous. So very dangerous.
Maintain a decent social distance
I’m just, like, a really tactile person. Like, I always have been.
I literally just need to hug everyone. I get it from my mother’s side.
Avoid poorly ventilated indoor spaces
Look, sure, my favourite bar is very small and has no windows.
But there are Happy Hour specials on vodka cocktails all this week!
I know, I know. It’s really not easy to alter your behaviour in order to protect other people.
But here’s a great plan and you don’t actually have to do anything at all. Quite literally.
If you are feeling unwell, just stay at home.
This one has been on all the posters and the emails and everything else that you have seen and been sent, but it doesn’t make the headline advice because it’s clearly just so obvious.
Sadly, with hindsight, it seems that assumption might have been something of a misjudgement on our part. [sigh]
And so from now on, can we add this seemingly most straightforward of advice to the short list above?
Thanks so much.
