Are You Sick And Tired Of Hearing About The Coronavirus and The Flu? Want To Know How To Keep Yourself and Family Healthy When Traveling?
How? Well, I’m sure you know all the basic things, wash your hands constantly and carry those little things that you hang on to your bag with the alcohol-based hand cleaner. And don’t and I mean don’t….fly when you are feeling sick! Why would you want to do that? You could feel worse by the time you arrive at your destination, and second, you could also make your seatmate feel as lousy as you do. Not a very nice thing to do to the world. ☹
And Do Not listen to social media and all the “stuff” they are saying about the virus. They probably don’t know any more than you do, but they think if they put it “out there” on Facebook or Twitter, people will believe them.
Now, if it comes from the CDC, then YES, definitely believe what they are saying. They are out there to keep you and the rest of us safe and free of the coronavirus and …the flu. Did you know that you are more likely to get the flu, our normal regular USA flu than the Coronavirus?
Well, it’s true. The flu is the most worrisome virus right now. According to the CDC, there are already 26 million cases of the flu this season! Wow, that’s another reason to follow a few easy steps to stay healthy.
Wipes are great for the seat arms and the TV if you are lucky enough to get this on your flight, and don’t forget the seat pocket. That is not the place to put anything that you own! No….stay away from the seat pocket. The magazine that is in there has been touched and fondled by many, many hands, and we don’t know where else those hands have been, so please bring your entertainment and reading material. It’s not worth it to take a chance of coming down with something.
And of course, I am going to mention our Airline Tray Cover….use this to protect yourself from whatever has been on the tray before you took your seat. You don’t even want me to tell you some of the things that happen on the tiny little area. ☹ Things that you and I don’t want to discuss and bring up, but I do want you to know that it has up to 8 times more germs and bacteria than the button that flushes the bathroom on the plane. Well, if that doesn’t scare the stuffing out of you, I don’t know what does. So, use the Tray Cover! Spend a few dollars and buy the cover it will give you a feeling of relief that you are not eating your peanuts and pretzels off of a yucky surface filled with germs.
Because all of us at Smart Blanket want you to stay safe and healthy. We care about you and want you to come back and visit our website and Facebook page, so PLEASE take care of yourself! Thanks ☺
