Coronavirus outbreak is a real thing and spreading at an enormous pace across the globe. While the government is doing its job of identifying and curing people, you, on the other hand, can contribute to curbing the spread.
Just in case if you have been sick in a while or your body is showing symptoms of coronavirus, then you must get yourself checked so you don’t become a transmitter of the virus.
Most probably, you would be sent to a quarantine facility which is a setting for testing people who have been exposed to an infectious disease. You might have to spend at least 8-9 days at the center before being discharged only if not tested positive of the virus.
So during these days, you might need some products for both hygiene and entertainment. And here is a list that can help.
The checklist takes suggestions from NJ.com, Syracuse.com, The Department of Homeland Security and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is pretty much everything you will need to help you throughout the quarantine process.
- Household cleaning spray or wipes
- Hand soap
- Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
- Toilet paper
- Feminine care products
- Dish soap
- A two-week supply of nonperishable food, snacks and water
- Prescription medications
- Vitamins that you normally take
- Over-the-counter medications such as pain relievers and stomach treatments
- Electronic access to medical records or hard copies from your doctor
- A plan for other family members that you care for if you become sick
Also, you can check out these videos of a Kerla Volgger who was recently sent to a quartine facility on the suspicion of being infected by coronavirus. He has detailed about his stay in the vlog.
As far as Food items go, there are several you can take. However, remember to take the items that you think will last longer and gives you enough energy to fight the virus.
- Snacks like healthy energy bars
- Milk powder
- Dry fruits
- Freeze food items
- Eggs and juice packs
- Canned food
You will probably get bored at a quarantine centre so make sure you have a streaming service subscription, like Netflix or books that you can read.
