To help you and your family stay safe during this precarious time, Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys has put together a list of valuable Arizona coronavirus safety tips.
Do Not Travel Unless Absolutely Necessary
Only leave the house when you need to purchase food or essential household items. Do not leave the house for social engagements, entertainment, or discretionary shopping. While there are less people on the road, many are panicked or on edge. This could lead to an otherwise avoidable car accident.
Be Vigilant While Shopping
Groceries and big box stores are full of “panic buyers.” Staff is often short. This can lead to stores being in disarray, with disheveled aisles and spilled products. Chaos in stores can result in a slip-and-fall accident.
Store parking lots can also be frenzied. Distracted drivers may be focused on finding a spot and making their purchases as quickly as possible, instead of driving safely. As you make your way back to your vehicle, keep an eye out for distracted drivers in order to avoid a pedestrian accident.
Practice Good Hygiene
Something as simple as thoroughly washing your hands for at least 20 seconds goes a long way towards containing the Arizona coronavirus outbreak. To further protect yourself, avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth. Cough or sneeze into your forearm or elbow. Offer a nice verbal greeting instead of shaking hands.
