Having been a Bio-Med Eng, I'm pretty versed in PPE, Blood borne pathogens (>big fat diarrhea bird turd) cross contamination, etc...
We've been staying home but there will still be that weekly trip to gather fresh produce and re-supplement existing stocks. (Take advantage of the 60+ only rule early mornings
Gloves are easy, on when you leave the truck, off after you put the disposable paper bags full of grocery's in back of truck.
Drive home, don new gloves, open door with elbow, bring in grocery's to prep on counter similar to the nice vid someone posted here (except utilizing 2 person, clean/unclean) and sterilize the only things in your pocket, drivers license and CC you used to pay.
Dispose of unclean wrappings in the disposable paper bags you used and out to the trash, strip putting clothes directly in machine and hit shower.
Mask is handy for some if simply only to remind you to not touch your face.
Not sure if I got this on 2a but will post regardless.
It helps to "know your enemy".
SUMMARY TO AVOID CONTAGION FROM JOHNS HOPKINS
Notes from an Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine:
In our community chat here, they sent this excellent summary to avoid contagion. I share it with you because it is very clear:
* The virus is not a living organism, this is an RNA virus with a protein shell that is covered with a layer of fat, which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.
* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and the type of material where it lies.
* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub your hands so for so long: 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius (77°F) for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more effective
* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
* Creating a solution with 1 part BLEACH and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, as it breaks it down from the inside.
* BACTERICIDE DON'T HELP. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; they cannot kill what is not alive with antibiotics.
* NEVER SHAKE used or unused CLOTHING, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (wood, because it removes all the moisture and does not let it peel off and disintegrates), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (METAL) and 72 hours (PLASTIC). But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules can float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
* The VIRUS molecules REMAIN VERY STABLE in EXTERNAL COLD, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars. They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, DEHUMIDIFIED, DRY, WARM and BRIGHT environments will degrade it faster.
* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is an excellent use case. Be careful, UV light also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin, eventually causing wrinkles and skin cancer.
* The VIRUS CANNOT go through healthy skin.
* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA help. The strongest vodka is 50% alcohol, and you need 65%.
* LISTERINE HELPS! It is 65% alcohol.
* The more confined the space, the greater the concentration of the virus. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
* REMINDER, but you have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
* MOISTURIZE YOUR HANDS more frequently with lotion from the frequent washing, because the virus can hide in the micro cracks of dry skin. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.
The following corrections have been brought to my attention.
1) * LISTERINE HELPS ! It is 65% alcohol.
LISTERINE® mouthwash has not been tested against any strains of corona virus.
Only some LISTERINE® mouthwash formulations contain alcohol, and if present is only around 20% alcohol. LISTERINE® mouthwash is not intended to be used, nor would it be beneficial as a hand sanitizer or surface disinfectant.
Original formula Listerine is about 54 proof with 26.9% alcohol, and many of the mint flavored mouthwashes are almost 22% alcohol. The alcohol content of Scope weighs in at 18.9%, and Cepacol at 14%.
2) * NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA help. The strongest vodka is 50% alcohol, and you need 65%.
If you happen to be in possession of the discontinued Bacardi 151 Rum, it is 75.5% alcohol and can be used for disinfection.
APPLY EXTERNALLY ! LOL
Apologies for the misinformation.
