Should I Stay or Should I Go?

In the ’80s, there was a band called “The Clash”, and they had one particular song that almost everyone is familiar with. No one really knows how the song goes, but the title is “Should I stay or should I go?”. And that’s a question you’ve probably heard often right now. Everyone is wondering whether they can take a trip to the store, go to a party, or even venture outside their houses. Recently on this blog, we posted an article that discussed several safe summer activities. But what about other activities? “Should I stay or should I go?”

In a word, “no”. That’s the simplest answer. Unfortunately, this virus isn’t simple. It’s much more complicated when you begin to consider the possible risk of leaving your home to access basic necessities. Thankfully, our country and businesses have adapted well to be able to safely meet these needs. Grocery stores are offering delivery services, while many restaurants have opened for curbside pickup. Even though there are other ways to access some of our favorite things, can we still do them the “normal way? Here at EcoHealth, we advise you not to spend extended intervals of time in confined spaces, regardless of how many people are present. This is especially vital if you are not wearing a mask. Our KN95 masks filter out 95% of virus-sized particles, so if you absolutely must go indoors, we recommend using our flagship model. However, even with a high-performing mask like our KN95’s, it’s still best to limit your time in close quarters. However, there are many fun activities that you can do outside. For some of them, you don’t even have to leave your backyard! U.S. News and Report have put together a list of fun activities you can do, all while safely social distancing.

If you remember to follow the quarantine guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it will help to keep you and your loved ones safe. When posed with the question of “Should I stay or should I go?”, don’t cause a “clash”. Be a quarantine rockstar and stay home.
