If you never thought about it before then now is certainly the time to consider healthy waste disposal practices. Now that we’re facing a very profound pandemic such as Covid-19 there is a definite need to dispose of waste, especially personal waste with caution. Utmost care must be taken when handling waste in the various health institutions, shelters and residential homes.
WHY IS IT NECESSARY ESPECIALLY DURING COVID-19?
Essential Service providers such as Junk King are tasked with the responsibility of providing efficient and effective waste management services especially at this time. We at Junk king Marin are heavily committed to ensuring that the people of Marin and Sonoma are protected from the spread of Covid-19 through our best practices.
Hospitals and other quarantine facilities require an increase in support due to a phenomenal increase in the usage of essential services and items. Ensuring that facilities remain clean and safe is critical in preventing the spread of the corona virus. Fast action and an effective response are keys to our fight against the deadly disease.
WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL PRODUCTS AND HOW TO DISPOSE THEM?
Some of the essential items we take include gloves, medical gowns, surgical alcohol, hand sanitizers, face masks and infected clothing. We have seen an increase in the disposal of ventilators, corona lab screening test kits and Covid-19 confirmation home test kits.
We take special care when disposing of contaminated items and surfaces. Droplets from infected patients can survive for several days which makes it imperative to properly handle and dispose. All bags containing waste should be tied and safely put out for pickup. As a leading response provider it is our duty to safeguard and encourage a speedy recovery process by adhering to strict Covid- 19 policies and guidelines.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE COVID 19?
The fact remains that there is no medical cure or vaccine that prevents or treats the Corona virus. Medical practitioners are baffled at how the disease has taken so many lives at such a rapid pace. To play your part in preventing the spread of Covid-19, here’s what to do:
- Cover all coughs and sneezes.
- Common symptoms include a cough accompanied by a fever and sometimes wheezing, self isolate and call for medical attention.
- Properly dispose of all tissues and hand towels containing bodily fluids
- Hand sanitize every 20 secs ( 70% alcohol)
- Avoid sharing personal items
- Clean all surfaces 3 times daily inside the home
The impact of Covid-19 has made it necessary to educate on how we can work together to combat this global epidemic. By following these simple steps you help to stem the growth of the number of infected people in the US. Show respect to the person standing next to you by practicing proper hygiene and waste disposal. Whether it’s by wearing a mask in public or by simply using tissue to cover your nose when you sneeze.
