COVID 19 (March 2020) 
If you can't find lysol or clorox wipes: 
1:10 bleach solution = 1/4 cup bleach mixed with 2 and 1/4 cups water. Put it in a spray bottle. Also get reusable cloth kitchen wipes and cut them into several pieces, put them in a plastic storage container with a sealable lid soaking in same 1:10 solution. 

When wearing a face mask and/or gloves, please don't become compacent - be very careful to avoid cross contamination even when wearing protective items. Keeping your hands washed and not touching your face are extremely important. 

Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds. Some songs to sing for 20 seconds: 
Happy Birthday (sing twice)
Row Row Row Your Boat (sing twice) 
Doxology (sing slowly and prayerfully)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow; 
Praise him all creatures here below; 
Praise him above ye heavenly host; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
