Here at the Leith Toy Hospital we are always very careful with health and hygiene. In the present climate, we thought it would be a good idea to share some of nurse Nancy’s best advice. We wanted to make a serious set of guidelines from the W.H.O become a little less scary for children and their toys.
Take Your Temperature
Remember to keep a close eye on your temperature so that you know straight away if you develop a fever. Hold the thermometer under your tongue for one minute, or use an ear thermometer. It’s great if you can practice doing this yourself, or with a friend.
Keep Your Distance!
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus.
A lot of our senior bears are over seventy or have underlying health issues. Therefore, make sure you have medical supplies at the ready. Above all, be prepared!
Stay Informed if self isolating
Keep up to date with the latest news from the World Health Organization. Find out what steps you and your toys need to practice because of the virus to say as safe and snuggly as possible.
Sneeze Into Your Elbow
Help your toys stop spreading the virus any further. Teach them to sneeze into their sleeves. Dispose of tissues carefully, consequently reducing spread of infection.
If you cannot visit friends in person due to isolation, use skype to have a chat and keep up morale. A web chat Wednesday could certainly help relieve boredom. Why not have a virtual teddy bears picnic!
Don’t Listen To Gossip
Finally, try not to worry too much because it can rub off on others. Ignore any scary stories you may hear. If we all help each other by being positive. Talk with your toys nicely, and they will be similarly calm and content whilst we wait for brighter days.
