These are strange times. For most of us, the biggest challenge is figuring out how to spend the time in quarantine. For others, it’s about trying to get better. One thing is for certain however, we’re all in this together and each individual’s actions will dictate how swiftly and orderly this process will conclude.
It is often in times of crises though when we people band together, divisions are thrust aside in the name of the common good. PumpProducts.com would like to take this opportunity to thank those who are combating the Corona virus. The medical professionals, first responders, and those who are sticking their neck out on the line to make sure people are taken care of. Those for sure weren’t easy jobs before and now they have just become more difficult. Words can’t quite describe the important role medical professionals play.
For general knowledge, here a few health tips from the World Health Organization regarding the virus:
• Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
• Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
• Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
• If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
• Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider
Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
With that said, we all need some levity with everything so serious around us. Here’s a video of two ladies playing the Titanic violin song in an empty toilet paper aisle.
Through these difficult times, PumpProducts.com will remain open to supply our customers. Even though the world may be in the throes of a global pandemic right now, life still needs to move on. Storms won’t take a vacation, therefore sump pumps must still be supplied. Water and sewage still needs to get where it’s going.
