Bear Advice

CareStaf's Mike Bear
is a fine looking bear and
so health conscious, too.
  He's a busy fellow and that includes
posing with his tissue for this shot. 
     'Tis the cold and flu season again.  Take a tip from our friend, Mike, the  Kansas City Carestaf* bear, on how he stays healthy.  His Mama Bear taught him and he listens to his mother like all bearlings, children and adults should.
     P.S. Mike has no medical training, so take or leave his advice.  Your fate is in your paws/hands.  However, we must add that he likes to listen to hearts with his toy stethoscope, so that qualifies him for something. Oh, yes, that qualifies him as a stuffed toy.

Mike Says:
  • Don't touch your face.
  • Don't rub your eyes.
  • Hold your breath when someone coughs or sneezes.
  • If necessary, touch elbows in greeting when someone is ill. Don't shake hands.
  • Spray disinfectant on door knobs, inside and out.
  • Polish television remotes with fresh disinfectant wipes.
  • Polish all phones with fresh disinfectant wipes.
  • Wash those paws/hands.
  • Dry your hands with paper towels, not a community cloth towel.
  • Bundle up in layers to go out.
  • Wear a hat out in the cold.
  • Layer your clothing, inside, too, if your thermostat is set low to save electricity.
  • Don't touch your face or lips.  I know I wrote that already, but it's the number one thing Mama Bear says.
     By the way, Mike Bear is friends with our Martha Bear, ursine spokesbear for this blog and Gracious
