Stay safely hydrated in self-isolation with Water-to-Go
With the ever-changing advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) such as 7-day self-isolation, working from home and some unhelpful panic buying of toilet rolls and plastic water bottles, it’s time for some positive news. Let Water-to-Go take safe drinking water off your list of things to worry about. Bulk buying single-use plastic water bottles is not a good solution for preparing for self-isolation as it is only a temporary solution and at some point, you will need to refill your supply and most likely put yourself at potentially more risk by going to the shops along with many other people. This is all without beginning to consider the environmental impacts of bulk buying single-use plastic bottles.
Don’t panic buy plastic water bottles
Getting yourself a reusable, refillable filter water bottle is a much better solution. Water-to-Go’s unique 3-in-1 filtration technology is able to remove up to 99.9999% of all harmful contaminants from any non-salt water source having been tested extensively in 4 different test houses including the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. One filter will last you between 2-3 months depending on size, which works out as the equivalent of up to 400 single-use plastic water bottles. Plus, order from our website and your bottle will be delivered straight to your door meaning you can avoid having to put yourself at further risk by having to venture back to supermarkets with large footfall.
Coronavirus Advice from the NHS
With a large amount of false information being spread about the COVID-19 virus, we’ve put together a short bit of information all from the NHS website about how to deal with the coronavirus outbreak. Please note that this information is advice from the NHS as of 17th March 2020. For up to date information please visit the NHS website.
Stay at home if you think you have COVID-19 related symptoms
The first piece of advice given by the NHS is to stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you do have symptoms:
- stay at home for 7 days
- If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
- If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
- If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Call the NHS 111 phone number if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
To help stop the spread of Coronavirus
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
- avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of coronavirus
- only travel on public transport if you need to
- work from home, if you can
- avoid social activities, such as going to pubs, restaurants, theatres and cinemas
- avoid events with large groups of people
- use phone, online services, or apps to contact your GP surgery or other NHS services
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
- do not have visitors to your home, including friends and family
