The threat of COVID-19 is still present, and you or a member of your family may test positive for the virus. Someone in your family may spend time in close contact with an individual who later tests positive, and everyone in your family may have to quarantine to avoid possibly spreading the virus to others. Make sure that you have these essentials in your first aid kit in case you have to spend time at home in quarantine.
Supplies That Can Be Helpful in Quarantine
Masks are critical. If one member of your family tests positive, that doesn’t necessarily mean that others have COVID-19. Wearing masks can keep the virus from spreading from one family member to another. 1st Aid Supplies offers 3-ply, latex-free face masks that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Any first aid kit should contain gloves. They can be useful when cleaning cuts to prevent infection and contamination. Gloves can also be helpful in preventing the spread of the coronavirus. 1st Aid Supplies sells gloves made with latex, nitrile, and other materials.
Over-the-counter medications don’t treat COVID-19 itself, but they can help you or another member of your family manage symptoms and feel better. Acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve) can lower a fever and relieve body aches.
Other Supplies to Have in Your First Aid Kit or Cabinet
Your first aid kit should also contain other basic supplies, such as bandages, hot and cold packs, antiseptic ointment, burn cream, and CPR supplies. You can order a first aid kit or cabinet to keep in your home in a location where it will be easily accessible whenever it’s needed. You should also keep a first aid kit in your vehicle in case someone gets injured in an accident, gets a cut, feels ill, or experiences some other type of problem while away from home.
