Tips to Staying Safe While Slowly Venturing Out of the Home  

At Grosskopf Law Office, LLC, we are concerned that as you venture out to visit loved ones or leave your home for essential items, that you have some helpful tips to keep in mind. Stay safe and healthy as our country slowly tries to adjust to its “new normal.”   

Leaving the Home for Essential Items
Be sure to protect yourself when needing to venture out by: 

  • Staying 6 feet away from others 
  • Wearing a Mask! 
  • Cover your nose, mouth and hands 
  • Try to go at times when there aren’t as many people out
  • Avoid touching your face until you wash your hands 
  • Apply hand sanitizer as soon as you can  

Coming Home from an Essential Trip 

  • Thoroughly wash your hands
  • Discard your disposable mask or wash your cloth mask
  • Wash vegetables and wipe down the outside of containers thoroughly, if you have purchased food items

 Note: If you can, continue to order online or use curbside pick-up to limit your exposure to others.
