Clearwater, FL, July 23, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- “We all understand that staying socially distanced and washing one’s hands regularly for at least 20 seconds is a part of staying well,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center. “But how about when going out to the grocery store, to and from work, pumping gas at your local convenience store, etc.? Do you know what preventative steps you should take to avoid bringing germs back home with you?”
According to the Center for Disease Control, viruses and germs left on high-touch objects and surfaces can contribute to the spread of illness. This includes handles of gas nozzles, door handles, even keys or credit card touch pads can become contaminated.
“‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,’ Benjamin Franklin said in 1736,” says Skjelset. “Despite his statement being made almost 3 centuries ago, his words are quite relevant today in helping make us alert to the value of taking extensive actions to stay healthy during these times.”
The Church of Scientology’s worldwide Prevention Resource Center on Scientology.org/staywell/ was created to provide basic information about what you can do to help keep yourself and others well.
The site provides information in 17 languages. Video PSAs cover topics such as: why it is important to keep our distance, what are bacteria and viruses and how to prevent their spread and hand washing procedure. In addition to booklets, the site also includes downloadable signage reminders for your home or business.
In one of the 28-page illustrated booklets available, “How to Keep Yourself & Others Well,” shows why prevention is important, and includes general health, personal hygiene, cleaning and sanitizing, and how to take extra precautions when leaving or returning to your home. Physical copies of this booklet, and two others on how to effectively use masks and gloves and how to prevent the spread of illness through isolation when one is ill are available at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater.
“We want to ensure the Clearwater community is aware that these resources are available for everyone at no cost,” said Skjelset. “We need to help one another to get through this time safely.”
