As a public service, Joseph Cianciotto shares several tips from experts on how to keep family members safe during a health crisis.

Wash hands: While washing hands should have always been a widespread practice, today, it has become an act of survival. Parents should require their children to wash their hands every single time they go home after playing outdoors or even just staying in their front porch and after touching anything that comes from the outside, such as groceries and food.

Disinfection room: Parents can set up a “disinfection room,” which can serve as the first place at home that they head to after being outside. Inside the room is a clean set of clothes, flip-flops, hand soap, and everything else that can ensure a person is germ-free for the most part.

Clean handles: Joseph Cianciotto says parents should always spray doorknobs with disinfectants after coming home. Parents should also be wary of what they touch before they wash their hands and disinfect these areas of the house and wipe them clean as well.
