things to use for protection of the Cornavirus.

Happy endings...
Be prepared, not scared. Let the scientists deal with the pandemic
and in the meantime everyone should continue efforts for staying
safe in an unsafe world. The more people who take preparedness
seriously, the better we are as a nation! Certainly it takes the
stress away knowing that you're prepared.

Even if you have all the
Coronavirus supplies you need, you may be
feeling stressed and overwhelmed. It's normal to feel anxious
about the unknown. Many people want to do more to help prevent
the spread in their community but may have exhausted their
resources until the next paycheck.

Wash your hands often and all day.
It can't be understated. Wash your hands. It's more effective than
an N95 respirator. It's in your hands the power to fight the virus.
Currently in the United States, the most effective thing you can do
to prevent Coronavirus is to wash hands and take your time
washing them. It's your primary defense. Wash your hands using
warm water and soap for twenty seconds, which is about the length
of the alphabet song.

Wash your hands often:
  • When preparing food, wash your hands first.
  • Before you eat, wash your hands.
  • If you cough or sneeze, wash your hands.
  • After using the restroom, wash your hands.
  • Wash hands directly after coming home from school, work or
    the grocery store.
  • If you pump gas, use a public phone or computer, touch a
    public railing or door nob wash your hands.
  • Don't touch animals and if you do, wash your hands
    immediately afterwards
  • Even if you've used a hand sanitizer, wash your hands when
    you get the next opportunity to wash with soap and water.

If Coronavirus hits your community, do you know what to do?

#11: Rethink your beauty and grooming routine.
Your fingers collect nasty germs everywhere. During a Coronavirus
outbreak it becomes important to take precautions in your
cosmetic routine to ensure your fingers don't touch your face even
to put on and take off makeup.

  • Should you shave? Everytime you shave you expose your
    face or legs to tiny cuts. If you touch your face or a cut with
    dirty fingers it enables germs to more easily get into your
    system. Shaving a beard is recommended when it's time to
    wear a facemask (gas mask or N95 respirator) otherwise it
    won't give you a tight seal.

  • Put makeup on using a sponge instead of your fingers.
    Minimize contact of fingers to your face by use of makeup
    sponges. You can also use cotton pads, which are very
    inexpensive at the Dollar Stores.


  • Hold off on a trip tot he ophthalmologist if you can. Take
    care in seeing an ophthalmologist only if necessary as you
    may inadvertently risk conjunctivitis (a symptom of
    Coronavirus). The American Academy of Opthalmology has
    an important update for ophthalmologists about Coronavirus.

#12: Practice Social Distancing.
Best practices is distancing yourself from strangers and people
who are ill. Keep six-feet away from anyone who may be infected.
Someone who sneezes or coughs spreads droplets of saliva or
mucus through the air and this is how the virus spreads. The
virus transfers from person-to-person directly when inhaled or
when transferred to the eyes, nose or mouth when a person
touches an infected surface.

Stay away from sick people! Minimize trips to the doctors office,
for example, and reschedule your annual physical.

#13: Regularly Disinfect surfaces.
Beyond washing hands there's so much you can do. While the
illness is new, the Coronaviruses spread through cough and
sneeze droplets. Did you know that viruses survive longer on
metal, plastic and other hard surfaces than they do on fabrics and
soft surfaces? The virus could survive for days! This means you
must disinfect in addition to washing hands.

The Center's for Disease Control (CDC) says to "Clean and
disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces" as a way to
help stop the spread of Coronavirus. Think of everything your
family touches!

Hard surfaces that you should disinfect include:
  • Your cellphone.
  • Your computer keyboard and mouse.
  • Door handles.
  • School desks.

#14: Know how to use a pandemic mask properly.
If you're using a pandemic mask, such as an N95 Respirator,
ensure you're using it properly.
  • Look for a respirator with a valve for easier breathing (you'll
    be less likely to take it off).
  • Before putting on the mask, wash your hands.
  • Cup your hand and place the mask in your palm.
  • Position the mask over your nose and chin.
  • Pull the top strap over your head and position above your
    ears.
  • Pull the bottom strap over your head and position below your
    ears.
  • Clamp the metal over the bridge of your nose using finger
    tips down both sides of the nose piece.
  • Do a fit check by cupping both your hands over the facemask
    and exhale. If air leaks at the masks edges, adjust the
    straps.
  • Wear a respirator only once.
  • Don't remove your mask to re-position it. Once it's on it's on
    or get a new one and start over. Removing the mask risks
    contagion getting straight to your face.
  • Don' touch your face under the mask.
  • Do not combine with essential oils.
  • Get goggles. Uncovered eyes risk exposure.

#15: Make small changes in your life.
Containing the virus is the most important precaution and you are
vital to helping your loved ones stay safe, so keep yourself safe
first. It's just like the airlines advise, place the oxygen mask on
yourself first then on your child. With that in mind keep the
following good practices under consideration...

Make small changes in your life:

  • Eat a well balanced diet. If you've been eating fast food
    and junk food, step up your game to add more healthy foods
    your diet. Let food be thy medicine and thy preventive care.
  • Ask to telecommute.

  • Document your health. Make a daily journal. Do you  or
    your loved ones have a sore throat? Diarrhea? Have you
    sneezed? How are you feeling? The journal could become
    valuable in helping others should you or your loved ones
    become ill. There's so much we don't know about
    Coronavirus and these things could be

  • Leave your shoes at the door. The soles of your shoes
    bring contagion from the outside into your home. A quick and
    easy solution that can effectively minimize contagion coming
    into your home this is leave your shoes at the door.

#16: Clean a closet, make lists.
Another free way to deal with your anxiety about Coronavirus is
to take to organization.

  • Do your prepping research. Did you know you that bleach
    doesn't last more than six months? It's also among the first
    cleaning supplies to go in the event of catastrophe and
    probably won't be available when you need it. That's why it's
    good to have a bottle of Steramine Sanitizing Solution,
    pictured right. The date printed on the product is the
    manufacture date. Item does not have expiry date! That's
    because you use one to two tablets per 1 gallon fo water.
    This multipurpose sanitizer turns blue in water and it's ideal
    for sanitizing food contact surfaces. Odor free, non corrosive,
    does not irritate the skin ! May also be applied with a clean
    cloth or sponge. Works great in kitchens & bathrooms! Can
    be sprayed on food processing equipment, sinks,
    Countertops, cabinets, refrigerators, stovetops, cutting
    boards, and all other non-porous articles and surfaces.

#17: Try to Remain Calm.
No doubt it's difficult to remain calm and carry on in the face of
the serious concerns of Coronavirus, but for the sake of others
around you, it's important to remain calm. Fight fears with facts
and common sense. Your children and loved ones need a steady
reassurance that you will get through this with careful prepping
and planning. Remember, it's the people who respond quickly and
remain clear-headed who have a distinct advantage when it
comes to survival.


Pay close attention to the needs of loved ones in specific groups
who are susceptible to the Coronavirus. Help them remain calm!
The CDC says people in this population, particularly older adults,
should stay at home as much as possible.

Among the population most at risk are:
  • People who are immunocompromised;
  • Anyone older than 65;
  • Those who have chronic heart, lung, or kidney conditions;
  • Women who are pregnant.

You can provide cogent peace of mind to these groups and help
them with their needs. Shop for them, order online and help them
get the supplies they need.

#18: Consider your life choices.
Aside from washing your hands, among the most important thing
you can do to avoid Coronavirus is reduce contact with others.
You can adjust your options as you consider the choices in your
life. Amid the heavy concerns about Coronavirus, consider these
ideas:

  • Stay away from the theaters, movies and performances.
    There's no need to expose yourself unnecessarily to
    potential contagion until we understand more about
    transmission and how to mitigate Coronavirus. This will
    mean that you may miss upcoming graduation services in
    June.

  • Talk with your church or synagogue. Ask leaders in your
    religious community for options, such as video services or
    follow along by asking someone else to record the service.
    You might find religious services that you can watch on
    television or the Internet.

  • Avoid Starbucks. Employees regularly put their bare hands
    on the lids of your coffee. This is an unsanitary practice
    (they should be wearing food service gloves). You can save
    your money and buy rice and beans instead.

  • Don't smoke. Like pneumonia, Coronavirus affects smokers
    in particular. If you were thinking of quitting your smoking
    habit, now's the motivation you need. Coronavirus is like a
    viral pneumonia where nasty germs stick to your upper
    respiratory system. Lungs inflame and fill up with fluid. Don't
    smoke tobacco. Don't smoke marijuana. Don't vape. Keep
    your lungs healthy. Save the money you'd spend for preps
    instead.

  • Stop using cash. HappyPreppers.com reported on Twitter
    (through video evidence) that banks in Wuhan were
    attempting to disinfect their currencies.

  • Rethink an AirBNB business. You never know if you'll get a
    Coronavirus airport or cruise ship detainee who gets
    "cleared" but really they're sick. Communist China is not
    divulging that there's a much longer incubation period than
    Westerner's realize.

  • Stop kissing your dog. There is growing concern about the
    transmission of Coronavirus from animals to humans as
    reported by ABC News. HappyPreppers.com reported early on
    Twitter (through video evidence) that officials in Wuhan
    were culling dogs. At the time it wasn't clear whether there
    were food shortages (both of people and pets) and whether
    this was a contributing factor for destroying the animals. In
    early March health officials in Hong Kong reported a dog in
    quarantine that tested with a "weak positive" for Coronavirus.

  • Cancel your cruise ship trip, avoid flight travel. Viruses
    don't discriminate. Don't let others shame you into visiting
    populations that may have had exposure to people who've
    been to Wuhan or regions around Hubei Province. There's no
    need to visit San Francisco's Chinatown or in Los Angeles
    near the city's civic and cultural center where people may
    have recently returned from the area. Until we understand
    the virus, there's no reason to expose yourself to people
    who may have travelled to see loved ones in these
    countries. It's not just Asian countries. You may want to
    avoid North Beach or Little Italy as well.

#19: Consider Disruptions are Inevitable.
Take time now to contemplate all the disruptions that may
happen in your life. Do you have contingency plan for any of the
following? Take time now to ponder the following disruptions:

  • Consider that colleges may not open in the fall. Now's the
    time to make plans for taking on an online college, like
    Arizona State University which offers degrees 100% online.

    Your college student may be not be headed to school in the
    fall, and instead taking classes online. Think we're over
    reacting? Think again:

  • Your schools and daycares will likely close, too.
Neosporin
Bactine
Bulk washclothes 100
New Skin
Makeup Sponges
Above, everyone's doing the Elbow bump.

#10: Don't share personal items.
Sharing personal items could get you a cold, a skin infection,
diarrhea or something worse: Coronavirus. Someone in quarantine
should use plastic utensils and paper plates to avoid cross-
contamination. Below are other items to stop sharing.

Don't let germs to hitch a ride on personal items:

  • Don't share pens and pencils. It's not overkill. It's prudent.
    And the National Baseball League is asking it's players not
    to sign autographs with shared pens.

  • Do NOT share toothpaste. Assign everyone their own tube
    of toothpaste. Also do NOT store your toothbrush with your
    loved ones. Keep toothbrushes away from sink splashes,
    towels. Use mouthwash to keep toothbrushes germ-free.

  • Do NOT share razors. Never share razors, and consider not
    using them at all! Razors can bring infection into your body.
    Better to skip shaving especially the arm pits where you
    have lymph nodes working overtime during Coronavirus. The
    only exception is for men who should shave to wear a face
    mask. Face masks will not provide a proper fit on those who
    have a beard or moustache.

  • Do NOT share towels. Stock up on small washcloths for the
    bathrooms and kitchen (you'll probably save money on paper
    towels) and use them once, then sanitize in the longer cycle
    of your laundry.

  • Do NOT share water bottles or glasses. Twitter was aghast
    at Frank Wucinski, a Wuhan Coronavirus Quarantine Survivor
    who was coughing on television sharing his story and a
    bottle of water with his daughter...
Ways to Prevent Coronavirus
Help prevent Coronavirus without spending a dime

19 things you can do to prevent Coronavirus.
There's much you can do to help prevent Coronavirus and many of
these things don't money. If you're new to prepping or strapped
for cash and wondering what you can do to mitigate your risks
that costs little or no money, then read on about how to prevent
Coronavirus without spending a dime...

Prevent Coronavirus without Spending
As COVID-19 approaches communities throughout the United
States, you may be feeling anxious about your options and about
what you can do about the situation beyond washing your hands
and getting more supplies. Prepping goes beyond stockpiling. It's
a way of life and an understanding that everyone must prepare
for the worst, but hope for the best.

So what can you do to prepare for the worst? Below are the 19
things you can do about Coronavirus that cost little or no money...

#1: Be prepared, not Scared!
Prepping is more than stockpiling. Prepping is a lifestyle. Do
something to stop the spread of Coronavirus because "By failing
to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

Let the scientists deal with mitigating the pandemic while you
continue your efforts at staying safe in an unsafe world. Do
anything at all.
Preppers always have a TO DO list whether it's
building new skills, updating a preparedness binder, adding a
food storage recipe to the family meals, watching a YouTube
video, reading a good
prepper book, or teaching kids how to
prepare for the future. The list is endless.

  • New to prepping? Read what you can about preparedness
    including our popular Web site.

#2: Take time to de-stress!
Children and adults alike are bound to feel anxiety and stress
concerning Coronavirus as there's so much we don't know about
the illness and about how it will affect our collective future. This
is totally normal. The good news is that just being a prepper can
help get rid of some stress.

Wondering what more you can do to de-stress? There's much you
can do to alleviate stress that cost little or no money:

  • Unplug from the news. Take action in an uncertain world to
    de-stress by unplugging from the television. Coronavirus
    news is bound to get more frequent and this could build your
    stress. Take a break from your favorite news channel and try
    something else.


  • Pray, meditate or just be grateful for the moment. Be in
    the moment to get grounded in your religion or your
    mediative practices. Just breathe and take in a comfortable
    zone of being grateful for everything you have. Certainly, a
    positive mental fortitude is necessary for survival.
    Remember to always have hope.

  • Partake in the simple pleasure of essential oils. Lavender
    is well known for its ability to sedate, induce relaxation and
    promote sleep. Lavender is an anxiolytic (a natural drug
    used to reduce anxiety). Lavender essential oil (10mL) is kid-
    safe and the aroma will instantly relax you.

    How many drops in 10mL? According to Webmd.com there
    are about 200 drops in one 10 ml bottle. Plant Therapy's 10
    mL Lavender essential oil costs as little as $7.49. Meaning
    each drop will cost about .04-cents each.

  • Laugh. Watch a comedy. Whether it's the Greg Gutfeld
    Show, The Three Stooges or your favorite Mel Brooks or
    Robin Williams movie, take time to laugh!

  • Walk in the sunshine! Another thing you can do that won't
    cost a dime is to take a walk in the sunshine away from the
    crowds. Walking relieves stress and anxiety and the sun's
    healing rays will rejuvenate you and give you a fresh
    perspective. It costs you nothing but your time. Walking is
    especially important for diabetics who are among those most
    at risk for Coronavirus. What's more, both sunshine and
    walking can help you get a better night's sleep, which is on
    the list of things you can do to help prevent Coronavirus.

#3: Get some sleep.
You’re more likely to catch an infection when you’re not getting
enough sleep. It's normal to have anxiety and trouble sleeping
while thinking about Coronavirus, but if you don't get enough
sleep you won't be productive at work and you might not be
healthy enough to survive the illness or your job. Now more than
ever, remember that early to bed, early to rise really does make
a person healthy, wealthy and wise.

A well rested body is a healthy body and there are many things
you can do to feel more well-rested, but seek help from a
physician if you can't fall asleep well with the techniques below,
and be sure to create a journal to document your sleeping habits.

Get enough shut eye and remember these tips:
  • Put the kids to bed early. Take away their device and give
    them a good book.
  • Hug your MyPillow and get some shut eye to get comfy!
  • Get to sleep faster using Lavender Essential oil.
  • Unplug electronics, which could affect your sleep such as the
    television, your cell phone or other devices.
  • Get a HEPA filter to help you clean the room of allergens
    that might affect your sleep.
  • Consider Melatonin as a dietary supplement if you have an
    overactive mind.
  • Sleep alone! Since Coronavirus is asymptomatic in the early
    stages, you really don't know if someone in your family has
    the virus right now. Sleeping in separate quarters can help
    minimize the threats of contaminating loved ones.

#4: Hydrate and prevent dehydration.
Hydrating is an important consideration in helping prepare your
body should you get exposed to the Coronavirus. While you can
and should buy
electrolytes for your pantry to deal with illness in
an emergency there are things you can do to prevent dehydration
that cost little or no extra money.

If you have an electrolyte deficiency, you may already be craving
salt, have muscle cramping or experience frequent thirst or
urination. Don't wait, hydrate!

Here's how to make your own electrolytes...

  • Learn to make ricewater. Most preppers have rice in their
    food storage. This can be a life-saving food for so many
    reasons, but one you've perhaps not thought about is
    making ricewater.

  • 8 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 pinches salt*
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • Lemon or lime to taste

    * The best salt to use for your water is Himalayan Pink Salt, but
    you can use any salt.

  • Mix your own Greaterade! Make your own sports drink with
    the FoodWishes recipe below. Make your own Greaterade, a
    recipe which uses Himalayan pink salt (available at your
    local Trader Joes or Whole Foods).
Above, learn how to make your own sports electrolyte drink.

#5: Stay away from the pharmacies.
Pharmacies are among the places NOT to be during an outbreak
of Coronavirus. A pharmacy is where you may contract the cold,
flu or even Coronavirus just by standing next to someone in line
who is ill. It only takes a misdirected sneeze or cough.

  • Skip the lines at the Costco pharmacy. Steer clear of the
    pharmacies at Costco especially in the weekday mornings
    when seniors are their getting their prescriptions. They are
    most susceptible to Coronavirus.

  • Order medicines and homeopathic supplements online.
    Get your prescriptions and medication by ordering online if
    possible. You'll also find your favorite homeopathic remedies
    online, such as Zicam Cold Remedy or Oscilloccinium.

  • Watch for price gouging and scams. As manufacturers
    restock inventories, you can order online in anticipation of
    further shortages. To avoid any scams, be sure to order from
    Amazon directly. Get your Prime membership and ensure
    that the product ships from Amazon.com. Here's how to
    make the most of your Prime membership.

  • Use antibiotics sensibly (take only when prescribed), so
    says the University of Puget Sound. It's "sound" advice
    indeed as the germs are outsmarting our use of antibiotics.

#6: Clean the right way.
Disinfect using the best disinfectants and chemicals to kill germs
on surfaces and follow cleaning and disinfecting advisories.
Follow the Amercian Chemistry Council's Center for Biocide
Chemistries
list of Coronavirus fighting products.

Consider these other tips when cleaning:



#7: Teach others how to minimize infections.
As Coronavirus spreads around the globe, there are things you
can do to mitigate the problem in your community. Coronavirus is
clever, but you can stick to the science of preventing infections
with protocols set up by the Centers for Disease Control.

Americans can help minimize the spread of the Coronavirus and
other illnesses with a few simple actions. They can take control
of how they cough and sneeze and they can teach others.

What you can teach others:

  • Do the "Dracula cough" (and teach it). With kids, pretend
    you are Dracula and you need to use your cape to cover your
    eyes. This brings your head to your elbow where you should
    cough. This method is a fun way to teach kids about
    minimizing the spread of germs.

  • Use anti-viral tissues and dispose properly. Tell your
    friends and family to buy Anti-viral tissues which, will help
    minimize the spread to others. Kleenex anti-viral tissues are
    the only tissue that can kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses,
    helping you to take care of you and your family during cold
    and flu season. These anti-viral tissues are made with three
    soft Plies, including a moisture-activated middle layer that
    kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in the tissue. Keep a zip
    lock bag handy to help you dispose of the contagious tissues.

  • Clean light switches and door knobs! Think about all the
    places your fingers touch in a day and clean these surfaces.
    The Center's for Disease Control (CDC) says: "Clean all high
    touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs,
    bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets,
    bedside tables...surfaces that may have blood, stool, or
    body fluids on them."


#8: Watch for cuts and scrapes.
Infections make their way into your body not just through the
eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. An infection can enter through any
number of means including breaks in the skin. That's why it's
important to treat cuts and scrapes properly especially during a
Coronavirus outbreak.

Cuts and scrapes can happen also with too much handwashing!
That's why it's important to watch for cuts and scrapes and to
use plenty of aloe-based moisturizers.

Here are some tips for washing cuts and scrapes:
  • Wash cuts and scrapes first by gently irrigating the wound
    under water. Experts say to wash around the wound without
    soap getting into the would. Good luck with that!
  • Try Bactine pain relieving cleansing spray, which kills 99% of
    germs.
  • Remove debris from the wound with sterile tweezers. One
    way to clean the tweezers is with rubbing alcohol,
    unfortunately rubbing alcohol is running out during
    Coroanvirus. Rubbing alcohol has many survival uses!
  • After irrigating and cleaning the wound, apply direct pressure
    with a sterile gauze pad to help stop the bleed.
  • Treat cuts with antibiotic ointment, such as Neosporin or
    Polysporin. Neosporin has many surprising survival uses.
  • Cover cuts with a bandage. Try also New Skin to cover and
    protect. Use liquid bandage when you need a flexible seal to
    protect hard-to-reach cuts, scrapes, wounds, calluses, or dry,
    cracked skin. It dries rapidly to form a tough, waterproof
    barrier.
  • Deep cuts may require a butterfly bandage.
  • Don't pick at scabs!
  • Wear nitrile gloves while your cut is healing if you're going
    shopping. It's the new Coronavirus Couture!

#9: Do the elbow bump!
Fist bumps are so old government. Next time someone
approaches you for a hug or a high five, stick them with your
elbow and do the elbow bump. Sticking out an elbow can help
educate others about the seriousness of Coronavirus in a light-
humored way. Doing the elbow bump can also provide the
necessary distance. So do the elbow bump! Even Vice President
Pence was caught doing the elbow bump:
