How to be a good neighbor during COVID-19

Dear Friends,

In this time of uncertainty, One Good Turn would like to remind everyone that while the COVID-19 virus is a threat to all of us, we are not a threat to each other.

We must work together to overcome this challenge. Be team players and good neighbors. Keep an eye out for each other. Share your hand sanitizer with the person next to you. Smile and greet each other with an elbow bump or (our personal favorite) a namaste bow. Remember that we are all global neighbors and it is times like these when it is even more important to treat each other as such. Today, and every day, we must remember to lift each other up. Together we are stronger than we could ever be on our own.

As the situation develops, OGT will continue to share resources and recommendations with our partner communities around the world, as well as with you. Please share these with your friends and family and encourage everyone to stay safe and healthy.

Tips for Prevention and Hygiene

  • Wash your hands - here’s a video with best practices for effective hand washing.

  • Don’t touch your face - remember, COVID is transmitted through droplets. Wherever a droplet may land is where you don’t want your fingers or your face.

  • Cough into your arm, not your hands, and turn away from others.

  • If you are over 60 or have an underlying health condition, take extra care to stay home.

  • Maintain adequate social distance - stay away from crowds, don’t get too close to each other, and if you can, work from home.

  • Share your hand sanitizer and your good spirits - now is not the time to be miserly, there are factories all over the world producing sanitizer and disinfectant wipes every day.
