I Think Everyone Can Say We Never Thought Times Would Get Like This
Over the last few weeks we have learned a lot about our families, got started on projects we thought we would never have time to do. Cleaned out our pantries and even learned to cook a little. And who started the designer face mask craze?
Restrictions are now beginning to lift just a bit. This means there is a possible increased chance of exposure to this virus. If you have not started yet, start adding daily ways to support your immune system and having a few items in stock just in case. Be ready to attack this virus before it gets out of control! As the saying goes, stay ahead of the curve. With that said, please follow social distancing guidelines. No handshaking; yes, a good grip is a Texas thang but for now, just stick with:
Howdie, a smile, and a wave!

A Quick List Of “To Do and Not to Do”
- Wash your hands with warm soapy water at least 20s. – Stop touching your face
- Sneeze into a tissue and throw it away in a closed sealed container – not in your pocket, put it in the trash – Wash Your Hands – Stop Touching Your Face
- Do not shake hands – Howdie and a smile will do thank-you!
- The virus sticks to surfaces, only touch surfaces that have been disinfected. Try carrying alcohol or Clorox wipes in a Ziploc with gloves and only touching doors or other surfaces with these items in your hands or on your hands.
- Wash Your Clothes and hair as soon as you return home if in public areas. Soap and water are an easy option for not getting sick. WASH YOUR HANDS.
- Wipe all surfaces down with an approved cleaning agent. It is not a bad idea to wipe groceries down before putting them away. Just the outside surfaces. Here is the list
- Follow 6 feet of social distancing while in open public areas. Be respectful to your neighbors please.
- The virus starts in the mouth, throat, and nasal passages. It is recommended you gargle with salt water or a good mouth wash if you feel a sore throat coming on.
- If you feel a sore throat coming on, increased fever and dry cough call the nearest hospital. They will guide you to the nearest testing centers and what the best thing to do next will be. Do not wait. The sooner you attack this virus the better.
- Zinc lozenges have also shown to be effective in slowing the growth of the virus. Not to exceed 150 milligrams daily.
- Increase your intake of Vitamin A, C and D.
- For fever use acetaminophen not to exceed 3,000 milligrams daily
- Stop Smoking, the virus attacks your respiratory system and a smoker is compromised.
- Wear a Mask in public if you have upper respiratory weaknesses like asthma, heart problems, or immune deficiencies. Pharmaceutical medications for these illnesses weaken the immune system and can leave a person susceptible to this virus. If you have any questions or concerns call your pharmacist and ask them what your precautions might be.
