Oxi Fresh – Staying United and Staying Safe
During these challenging times, it can be difficult to know what you should do. New recommendations are issued on what feels like a daily basis, local governments are putting out new orders, and there are tons and tons of articles saying all sorts of things.
So the best thing to do is trust the reliable sources at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Below, we’ve broken down a variety of their useful links into four groups: Stay Informed, Stay Safe, Stay Clean, and Stay Supportive.
It’s important to stay up-to-date on information about COVID-19. This will help you make wise, informed decisions and help protect you from rumors and misinformation.
- The CDC’s COVID-19 Landing Page has links to various useful tools, information, and news updates from the CDC.
Staying safe by following social distancing guidelines and other advice from the CDC is the most valuable thing you can do. It will not only help protect yourself and your family, but your community as well.

This is a challenging time for everyone, with people losing their jobs, being isolated from their friends and family, and dealing with the general stress of this pandemic.
That’s why we all need to stay supportive of each other. Stay in contact with your friends and family via phone calls, web calls, or texts. Offer help to friends and neighbors who are in need. Don’t hoard items that you don’t need – give them away.
