Clean your hands. Don’t touch your face. Social Distance. Boost your immune system.

Remember also to clean the things that your hands touch, including your wheelchair (push rims, wheel locks, wheels, armrests, and joysticks) and other assistive devices that contact your body. Don’t forget other surfaces you interact with such as your phone, which can be wiped with a slightly wet disinfectant cloth.  Learn about these tips and more. Details

Some simple tips to limit your exposure when bringing food and goods into your home from grocery stores and deliveries. And did you know getting enough sleep (6 to 8 hours each night) can lower the stress hormone cortisol, which suppresses immune function? Details
