LIVING WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID? HERE IS HOW TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.
Two of my three children have tested positive for COVID 19. Only one of them lives at home and is sharing space with my only child who had not tested positive. We had anticipated that daughter number three may, at some point, contract the virus because she shares a room with our daughter who has tested positive. Surprisingly, so far she had not contracted the virus. We’ve been lucky. Our son is 36 years old and living with his wife and children in Arizona. A state that has been a hot spot for the virus in recent times. We don’t share a living space and have successfully recovered.
My husband, one of my daughters, and I have tested negative on more than one occasion. I have also tested negative for antibodies last week, after donating blood. How do we keep these results? We pray....oh and we do a bunch of other things.
The first thing we did was isolate the girls. We brought in a small refrigerator and they used the same bathroom, which my husband and I did not use.
Secondly, we ALWAYS wear masks and gloves, and stay more than six feet away, when it is absolutely necessary to assist them. For example, we drop things off in their restroom for them to pick up, like cooked food and medicines.
Thirdly, we established a regular cleaning regimen above and beyond our usual standards. Sanitary (bleach )wipes are used before and after touching anything. We change masks regularly and wash our HANDS and FACE ( Eyes, Ears, and Mouth) diligently before and after donning gloves, masks, and removing them.
We share a small space, so it’s critical to create a plan of action. If you also share a small space, I strongly recommend adopting some of these tips. If you have tips to share, visit www.TaylorMiltonHomes.com to help our community stay safe.
In closing, I will tell you what I tell my children daily.
TAKE CARE OF YOU FOR ME!
