Video Shows How One Cough Can Spread Coronavirus

This video shows how one cough in a grocery store can spread coronavirus over 6 minutes.

You are at the grocery store and you hear a person cough in the next aisle over, you probably think you're safe since there is a rack of food between you, but this  video shows just how unsafe you are.

The best way to avoid getting sick is to avoid public areas as much as possible. Plan your shopping trips for when it is really necessary. Just ran out of q-tips? Probably not essential. Ran out of toilet paper, soap and milk probably a good time to plan a trip, but when you do go out buy enough stuff to keep you out of the store for the next week or two, but don't hoard. 

Buy foods that can be frozen or have a long shelf life and avoid wasting money on snack foods that offer no nutritional value. Examples of fruits that have a long shelf life include oranges, apples, and grapefruit. Vegetables like potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, and squash are great choices. Meat can be frozen and usually thaw in the refrigerator in about a day.  

Keep in mind the CDC is now recommending people wear cloth masks when they go out and there are lots of different videos online to show you how to make one if you don't already know. Many require no sewing.

Stay healthy!

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
