While the Covid-19 Pandemic is looking to be heading towards control in the near future thanks to the development and roll out of vaccines, your lifestyle and nutrition choices play a role in how resilient your immune system is for all illness.
Below are some resources and general information on how you can help support your body's immune system not only during COVID but in the future as well.
General Considerations During the Pandemic

- Follow CDC guidelines. Practice good sanitation like frequent and thorough hand-washing and take social distancing seriously as long as it is recommended.
- Clean well and clean often. Wear gloves or wipe down cart handles. Wipe down household surfaces, phones, laptops, bathrooms, doorknobs, etc. frequently with alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, and other cleaning agents. These agents can kill the virus, which can live a few days on surfaces.
- Wear a mask in public. Recent reports suggest that this coronavirus can live outside the host longer than other viruses, and that it is airborne. Experts and the CDC now recommend wearing a good-quality, non-surgical mask when leaving the house. (Source)
