With many states on the path to re-opening, it’s important that we don’t abandon all precautions in the rush to return to normal ways of life. Here are a few measures you should consider taking in order to protect yourself and your family.
- Don’t forget the hand sanitizer. It’s likely that many businesses will have hand sanitizer stations as they open back up, but it’s always a good idea to carry your own small bottle with you. Be sure to use it after touching surfaces that are frequently touched by others if you’re unable to wash your hands with soap and water.
- Don’t abandon social distancing! As you head back to your office and other public places, don’t forget you should still be maintaining a safe distance (the CDC recommends 6 feet) from those that don’t live in your household.
- Consider wearing a face covering or mask when you’re in public. Many businesses will likely be requiring employees to wear a mask, but if you’re a customer you should consider wearing one, too.
- Watch where you set your cell phone down. Instead of setting your cell phone down on the counter when you pay for your groceries, stick it in your pocket or put it back in your purse. Still, you should continue to disinfect your electronic devices.
- Use contactless payment when available. Payment options like Apple Pay or Google Pay can come in handy during times like this when you want to limit your physical contact with public surfaces. It only takes a few moments to upload your First United Debit Card to your Mobile Wallet.
We’re all eager to get back to normal, but it’s up to us to keep our communities safe and well. Thank you for doing your part.
