Tell me what you think.

So the world might be going back to normal; stores, restaurants, and businesses are all starting open.  What are your fears or are you over it? Will you ever resume your old ways? Like coming home from shopping and NOT washing your hands three times and using antibacterial hand gel or wiping down the shopping carts before touching it. Have you stopped touching your face yet? How hard will it be going out to a restaurant and not worry about all the germs, or if people get to close to you? Will you think twice before you hug someone? How long will it be before you feel safe enough to get your nails done? When will you not want to wear a mask? (I’m sure you have them in all colors and styles by now!)

 

What we went through was surreal and we don’t ever want to re-live it again. The world in my book has truly changed. Hey, you never know, maybe we will never have a bad flu season now that we have all learned how not to get sick. Stay safe my friends and be positive! And if it was your birthday during this pandemic, give me your address I will drive by and wave. 😊

Benefits of Document Scanning Services

Trying to put all your files in one place? Try getting your copier to do the work for you!
A network scanner can help your office turn the tide on productivity. Office employees spend a lot of time during the workday combing their desks for paperwork. Eliminate that wasted time by adding scanning into your daily routine. Scanning directs documents into a digitized workflow and brings calm where there once was clutter to quickly digitize analog information for storage in a system of record. Paper documents are costly and risky. For most organizations today, the systems of records have become electronic.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS DURING THE PANDEMIC.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks at Brothers II. The company was knocked out by Covid-19 and we all contracted the virus. I’m happy to report that everyone is on the mend and we are all healthy once again. We are all back to work and are open for business. Please stay safe and we hope the best for you and your family! Check out some helpful hints to help protect yourself and others:

COVID-19-how-you-can-make-a-difference-infographic-1600x900-final

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus.
    • Stay home as much as possible and avoid non-essential travel.
    • Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet — about two arm lengths — away from others if you must go out in public.
    • Stay connected with loved ones through video and phone calls, texts and social media.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others and when you must go out in public, such as to a grocery store. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
    • However, do NOT place cloth face coverings on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
    • In addition, do NOT use a facemask meant for a health care worker.
    • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
    • See CDC guidelines, including how to create your own cloth face cover.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth, and throw used tissues in a lined trash can. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow — not your hands. Wash your hands immediately.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks. Follow CDC guidance.

CAN DOGS CONTRACT CORONAVIRUSES?

Dogs can contract certain types of coronaviruses, such as the canine respiratory coronavirus, but this specific novel coronavirus, aka COVID-19, is believed to not be a threat to dogs.

The World Health Organization reported that there have been no reported cases of coronavirus in domestic animals. “At present, there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the novel coronavirus COVID-19,” their report says.

How to protect yourself from coronavirus

1800x1200_coronavirus_1

Basic hygiene is the best thing you can do, according to a doctor of infectious diseases.
1) Wash hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose & mouth.
2) Stay away from those who are sick
3) Clean surfaces
4) Get your flu shot

Getting your Flu Shot  (it’s not too late) = lowers the risk of hospitalization, & the healthier you are, the lowers your risk if you do get Covid19.  It also helps communities as you’ll likely use fewer medical resources!

 

You are still MUCH more likely to be exposed to flu than Coronavirus.

 

While CDC considers Covid19a serious situation and is taking preparedness measures, the immediate risk in the U.S. is considered low. Everyone should always take simple daily precautions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses. http://www.cdc.gov/nCoV

 

 

Lose Holiday Weight with your copy machine.

Christmas Parties = Holiday Weight

Waiting for copies at the copy machine? Take this time to sneak in a quick leg workout or tone your tummy.  Stretching and moving your legs builds muscle strength and endurance and prevents aches and leg pains.

Build leg muscles while making copies

How to do it: While holding on to the copy machine for balance, bring your knee up and down, or after bringing your knee up, extend your leg back. Try pulsing your leg to really get your muscles burning.

Toning your tummy

• Start with feet flat on the floor.
• Stand tall at your copier.
• Hold your abdominal muscles tight.
• Extend one leg until it is level with your hip.
• Hold for ten seconds.
• Slowly lower leg.
• Repeat 15 times.
• Change legs.

These exercises are subtle enough that if you hear someone coming, you can quickly stop.

Give these links a try you already have the copier.

Print your wrapping paper with your copier!!

The holidays are coming why not save money this year by making your own wrapping paper?!!

Cut the wrapping paper to 8 inches wide so that it will fit in the printer. The paper can be as long as you need it, but can only be as wide as the printer to run through. Load the wrapping paper into the printer and hit print!

Or use these websites or find one of your own.
