I've always stayed in my home because I'm sort of a loser. So, this whole Coronavirus thing hasn't really affected me too much. That being said who doesn't like free money, so this headline really caught my eye
What would you buy with your free $1,000? I'm probably gonna buy Animal Crossing when it comes out and maybe some more toilet paper because apparently that's all the rage. I'm always trying to stay up to date with trends.
NEW: Treasury Sec. Mnuchin says White House is “looking at sending checks to Americans immediately … I mean now, in the next two weeks.”— NBC News (@NBCNews) March 17, 2020
When asked how much would be in the checks, Mnuchin says he’ll be previewing that with Republicans. pic.twitter.com/ksxWZxI3iA
In all seriousness, this is an unprecedented move by our government and honestly, it makes Trump look really good for the upcoming election season. I'm interested to see how they'll actually send us our money. I take Venmo!
While this story is pretty crazy, the Coronavirus is no laughing matter. Below are the some best ways to protect yourself and loved ones from coming into contact with the virus, according to the CDC.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well NOT wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by ONLY people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
