Bug In Preparations

Bug in preparations are essential to create, maintain, and succeed in keeping oneself and one’s family happy and safe. But, preparations against what? Well, the primary thing we are going to talk about today is bug in preparations against viruses.

What is a virus?

Let’s take a look at just what a virus is.

To make sure that I don’t get too complex with a definition, I am now going to use the definition from Study.com.

“A virus is a tiny, infectious particle that lives inside of living organisms. The particle is too small to be seen with your eyes, and it’s made of DNA (genetic material that’s like a string of directions) and a protective coating. It doesn’t eat, breathe or move on its own. In fact, a virus can only survive if it is inside of a living thing, called a host, and the only job of the virus is to replicate (make copies of itself).”

Does that sound simple enough?

Danger – Viruses spread!

Should you have cause for alarm? I would say yes. Viruses are sneaky little particles that can travel from you to mom to dad to friends to communities to countries or to the entire world. In other words, viruses not only can make you sick, but also everyone you know – or even don’t know. That makes it extremely dangerous.

This is why it is so critical for you to prepare to bug in against viruses, if you haven’t already started, especially in our world today with the COVID-19 rearing its ugly head.

Help Needed – What Can You Do?

There are steps you can take right now to prepare to bug in against viruses. Let’s break them down into easy steps.

Take care of yourself

You can start by stocking up on supplies that you might need around your house. Take a look at just a few items I have compiled below.

• Over the counter medicines that you use on a regular basis, things like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, cold/flu medicines, hemorrhoid wipes, bleach wipes, disinfecting spray, baby wipes, paper goods (toilet paper, paper plates, paper towels), just to name a few.
• Prescription medications – See if your doctor will work with you and order prescriptions a little earlier than when you run out. Just don’t use up your stock in case your doctor is not willing to work with you.

Don’t social mix.

What do I mean by this? I mean you shouldn’t congregate with other people, especially if you are sick. If you have to be around people, the recommended distance that you should not get any closer to is six feet. You don’t want someone to sneeze or cough on you. I know; it’s hard. If you are a senior, it may be best to not have grandkids visit you during an epidemic or pandemic.

But, if I’m telling you not to congregate with other people in stores, what can you do? Well, what we do at Prepare to Bug In is we have our groceries delivered right to our house. We have them put the groceries on the ground at our front door. Once the delivery person leaves, then we go out and bring the groceries in.

If we get an urge to have fast food, yes, we have that delivered too.

Become cleanliness conscious.

If you are handling mail that has been delivered or someone does deliver something to your door, get in the habit of wearing gloves – and yes, wearing masks. Germs are wily little things; they can attack you when you least expect it.

Wash your hands. You can’t wash them enough. It doesn’t matter if you use cold or hot water; just make sure you wash for at least 20 seconds. You may have been told as a child that cleanliness is next to godliness. I’ve applied that philosophy all my life.

If someone comes to your door and you don’t know them – don’t let them in! It might sound silly, but if they touch your door or doorknob, go out after they leave and wipe down where they touched with disinfectant wipes. I always say that it’s better to be safe than sorry later.

Senior bug in preparation is essential! As a matter of fact, bug-in preparation and even self-quarantining is essential for everyone. You just can’t be too safe anymore.

Bug in preparations against viruses is serious stuff and not just because of the Corona Virus. Protecting yourself just makes good common sense. Don’t wait!
