Continuing to take care of ourselves from COVID-19 is everyone's task!

At the moment, COVID-19 infections continue to be registered in Puerto Rico and worldwide; And letting your guard down is not an option. At SER de Puerto Rico we reiterate our commitment to comply with our Infection Control and Safety Protocol for our employees, families and the entire community.

That's why we remind you of the protective measures for you and your family. These measures will be helping you avoid the contagion and spread of COVID-19. Put these measures into practice in all the places you have to visit!


Hand washing is important that you do it frequently and for twenty minutes. Here is a list of some times when you should do it:

  • before, during Y after to prepare food
  • Before to eat
  • Before Y after caring for someone in your home who is vomiting or has diarrhea
  • Before Y after to treat a cut or wound
  • After to go to the bathroom
  • After from changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has gone to the bathroom
  • After from blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After from touching an animal, animal feed, or animal droppings
  • After handling pet food or treats
  • After to touch the garbage

During the COVID-19 pandemic, you should also clean your hands:

  • After being in a public place and touching an item or surface that others might frequently touch, such as door handles, tables, gas pumps, shopping carts, electronic cash registers or screens, etc. .
  • Before touching your eyes, nose or mouth because this is how germs enter the body.

Here are the steps for hand washing:

  1. get wet hands with clean running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap and lather your hands.
  2. rub hands with soap until foamy. Rub the foam on the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your fingernails.
  3. scrub up hands for at least 20 seconds. Do you need something to measure time? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song twice from beginning to end.
  4. rinse thoroughly your hands under clean running water.
  5. dry themwith a clean towel or in the air.


Another measure that helps protect you and the people around you is the use of a mask in public spaces. The mask must:

  • Have two or more layers of washable and breathable fabric.
  • Cover the mouth and nose completely.
  • Fit precisely to the sides of the face, without gaps.


You should also practice physical distancing. This consists of keeping a safe distance between yourself and other people who do not belong to your household.

To practice physical or social distancing, you must maintain a distance of at least 6 feet (approximately the length of 2 arms extended) from other people who are not members of your household, both indoors and outdoors.

Social distancing is one of several everyday prevention measures that must be taken together to reduce the spread of COVID-19, including wear masksAvoid touching your mouth if you haven't washed your hands, and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
