The continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic means that this winter season will be unlike any other. From business and workspaces to individuals staying at home, we all are having to make adjustments to our routines. Nevertheless, we all want to be able to enjoy the winter season safely. With that in mind, STER-OL offers this simple checklist. Following these steps can help you, your family, and your colleagues make the best of the coming snowy season.


1. Stay Informed with Updates from Health Officials

This may seem like an obvious first step, but it is a crucial one. Staying informed of the COVID-19 pandemic through official channels is essential for stopping the spread and staying safe this winter. These include the Government of Canada, Health Canada, and provincial and municipal government officials. Keeping up-to-date will ensure you have the latest information to stay safe, as well as learn new details regarding business operations, local guidelines, and how your community is coping this winter.


2. Follow Recommended Safety Precautions

Whether you’re spending your time at home or in a shared space like an office or business environment, keep aware of your surroundings and do what you can to protect yourself and those around you. Whenever you step out of your home, whether for work or to pick up some essentials, be sure to bring a face mask or shield with you to enter public places. You can even pack an extra one in your car, bag, or purse. The same can be said for a bottle of hand sanitizer. Regardless of if you’re going out for the day or staying home, frequent hand washing and physical distancing remain key ways to lowering everyone’s risk.


3. Keep Connected with Others

While we continue to focus on the physical health and safety of our family, friends, and loved ones, it’s important to take time for our mental health as well. Though our options to socialize this winter may not be the same, we do have the power to stay connected and fight off the winter blues together. FaceTime a friend, host a virtual game night over Zoom, or just start an old fashioned group chat with extended family members from out of town. Staying close to those we care about can improve our well-being.


4. Disinfect Your Space with SteraMist®
