BRIA Homes, one of the leading housing developer in the Philippines, is reminding homeowners to heed safety protocols during the enhanced community quarantine:
Stay at home. Since the virus can be transmitted through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person (generated through coughing and sneezing), and through touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, remaining indoors helps halt the spread of the disease.
BRIA Homes routinely cleans and disinfects common areas and public spaces in its communities, making these safe for its residents. By ensuring the security of its villages, BRIA also enables homeowners to enjoy home quarantine with their families.
Practice good health and hygiene. Frequent handwashing with soap and water and using 70% percent alcohol for hand rubs help decrease chances of contamination. When coughing or sneezing, it is important to cover the mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue and to dispose of the used tissue immediately. One must also avoid touching one’s eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Eating nutritious food and getting regular exercise can also boost one’s immune system and help it fight infection.
Clean and disinfect regularly. BRIA Homes enjoins its homeowners to keep their living spaces clean. Frequently touched surfaces such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, desks, handles, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks must be disinfected regularly.
