Get Your Household Ready for COVID-19
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urges all Americans to ready their households for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Now is the best time to prepare for this pandemic. The CDC says, "A COVID-19 outbreak could last for a long time in your community. Depending on the severity of the outbreak, public health officials may recommend community actions designed to help keep people healthy, reduce exposures to COVID-19, and slow the spread of the disease. Local public health officials may make recommendations appropriate to your local situation. Creating a household plan can help protect your health and the health of those you care about in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19 in your community. You should base the details of your household plan on the needs and daily routine of your household members."
One very important recommendation of the CDC is to practice good personal habits and plan for home-based actions. The agency urges everyone to practice everyday preventive actions now. Remind everyone in your household of the importance of practicing everyday preventive actions that can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily (e.g., tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles) using a regular household detergent and water.
- If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent and water prior to disinfection. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products.
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 a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

Briefs or underwear? Sounds a little confusing because in general clothing terms, they mean the same thing. However, when speaking about incontinence products, briefs and protective underwear are two very different things.
If you are looking for extra protection against leads from your absorbent pads, pull-ups, and adult diapers a pull-on waterproof cover-up may be your answer.
Approximately 13 million Americans are incontinent and 25% of them are men. Just because women are three times more likely to have this condition doesn’t mean men should ignore it. Especially men over the age of 50.
