With the pandemic attacking the entire world, it’s more important than ever to try to keep your family safe. We worked hard to develop a way to help you track the virus in live time, you can simply check out this COVID-19 Live Tracker post to learn more.
Today we wanted to share some tips to keep family safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. Whether you have an essential worker at home or in your extended family now is the time to keep a close eye on your loved ones.
Tracking Essential Works Who May Be Teens
It’s important to make sure your teenagers stay home and only travel to their job if they’re working in an essential business. Using our tracking app for parents, you can easily maintain the proper social distancing guidelines with your teens by knowing where they’re at when away from home.
Virtual Video with Elderly
Most of our elderly relatives are stuck in nursing homes unable to have visitors or enjoy their regularly scheduled nursing home activities. You can use an app that offers video conferencing to keep in touch with your elderly. This will help boost their mental health so that they don’t become consumed with loneliness during the pandemic quarantine.
Check Your Temperature
Whenever your family has a cough or seems to be a little off, keep track of your temperature by using a thermometer in the home. This is an easy way to see if your temperature is rising which could mean that you have COVID-19. Always listen to your local government and health officials on what to do if you show signs of the virus.
Play Family Games
While your physical health is important, your mental health is too. We’re not meant to be cooped up in the house for months on end, but here we are, being told to stay home unless we have essential jobs or essential shopping to do. Every country is different in how they’re handling the pandemic, but one thing for sure, you can enjoy some family games at home to pass the time and maintain positive mental health during these days.
Discussing the not-so-easy to chat about conversations regarding the virus will help keep your kids at ease. Kids may have questions as to why they can’t go hang with their friends, attend a traditional school or leave the home to enjoy a day at the playground. Try to keep conversations open in your home so that everyone feels safe and confident that you’re in this together and doing your best to keep the family safe.
When it comes to keeping your family healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s important to have a stockpile of food, medical supplies such as a thermometer and fabric masks whenever you have to venture outdoors for essential shopping, and any other medications that your loved ones may need regularly. While many have advised against hoarding supplies, you can have the right amount necessary in your home to keep your family safe and use our app to keep track of the live updates for data surrounding COVID-19 outbreaks.
