In-Home Care Tips to Help Your Aging Loved Ones Stay Safe from Coronavirus in Greater Tucker, GA

The whole world is being caught up in the throes of a major pandemic. Your job as the family caregiver for an elderly loved one is to ensure they remain healthy. Fortunately, as time passes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continue to learn more about COVID-19, more commonly known as Coronavirus. Among the more important things they have learned is how quickly it can spread through a community, leaving behind serious illness and death in its wake.

Coronavirus can be:

  • Spread from person-to-person, especially people within six feet of one another. This is the most common cause of spread.
  • Spread through the air from a cough or sneeze and can linger there for three hours.
  • Spread quickly because it lasts for multiple hours or days on surfaces like copper (up to three hours), cardboard (up to 24-hours), and plastic and stainless steel (up to three days).
