Advice for Florida residents on safety during this COVID-19 quarantine
This virus continues to be a problem for residents around the world. The only way to beat it is together – everyone can do their part to keep their community safe, starting by learning about the best possible preventative practices. LoanMart is committed to keeping its employees informed, maintaining strict travel policies, and canceling or postponing any gatherings. To actively keep the community safe, LoanMart has taken independent steps to prevent the spread of the virus and would like to share this advice with the public.
In order to reduce the risk to vulnerable people in our society, everyone must take precautions as this virus continues to grow. LoanMart is closely following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on how we might be able to mitigate the transmission of the virus. As of now, the CDC recommends social distancing as the primary defense against the spread of COVID-19. Staying at home as much as possible and at least six feet apart in public is essential to reducing the spread of the virus, as well as maintaining public safety.
As part of the Florida Shelter-in-Place Order, residents are encouraged to stay home and avoid going outside unless absolutely necessary. If you must go out, it is recommended that you keep a social distance of at least six feet from other people and wear a mask to prevent the spread of the virus.
The CDC also recommends limiting social gatherings in any form, as large groups coming together can accelerate the spread. The virus is mainly spread through coughs and other close contact, so following these recommendations is essential to help keep the Florida community safe.
In addition to these helpful tips provided, LoanMart would also like to share that the CDC has recommended the prevention measures mentioned below. You can also read more about how Floridians can protect themselves from the coronavirus on the Florida Health COVID-19 website.
Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. To do this, cover all sides of the hands with foam to ensure cleanliness. This should always be done after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing; go to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food for yourself or for others.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands immediately after. Cleanliness can also be a crucial tool in the fight against this virus.
Make sure you stay home when you are sick. Do not risk the health of your community and the spread of the virus.
Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands – this includes your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Effective self-quarantine in Florida
If you are currently in self-isolation or mandatory quarantine, the CDC also recommends these helpful measures:
Try to avoid close contact with people who are sick or who feel sick. Some signs of potential illness are fever, difficulty tasting food, shortness of breath, and persistent cough.
Protect yourself by staying home when you are sick, except for medical attention.
Protect others by covering your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. The virus can easily be spread by coughing, so it is essential to be vigilant about your coughing and sneezing.
If you are quarantined or isolated with others, be sure to clean frequently every day frequently touched surfaces and objects (for example, tables, counters, light switches, doorknobs and cabinet handles). This can be done using regular combinations of detergent and water. To disinfect surfaces more effectively, the CDC recommends dilute solutions of bleach, as well as alcohol solutions containing at least 70% alcohol. In addition, most household disinfectants registered by the EPA can also be effective.

Take the time to relax. Try to do other activities that you enjoy and explore new hobbies to keep your mind active.
Connect with your friends and family. Keep communication open with people you trust about your concerns and feelings to help reduce stress.
Although most public gathering places such as restaurants and entertainment centers in Florida are closed, daily short walks on the beach or sitting in the sun at a safe distance from other people are encouraged to keep the moral.
