The best prevention is limiting social contact as much as possible and when planning to go out in public wash your hands before and after, meanwhile avoid touching your face as this is how the virus is transmitted to you. Keep a 2m distance where it is possible. Important: See online videos on how to wash hands.
It is best to stay positive, have fun and go outside in nature every day for walks and exercise, drink water, eat healthy whole foods, prepare to plant a garden and stock the pantry.
Have your favorite onset of cold strategy ready. (i.e. Oil of oregano, colloidal silver, Vit C and zinc, Thieves oil, fresh ginger tea with honey, Antiviral tincture, etc.) Most important is to rest after the onset of a cold or flu.
For regular colds we have some Chinese herbal formulas in stock: If the onset cold progresses to a head cold - Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Wan to relieve headache, runny nose, slight fever, tickly throat, sneezing. If Cold progresses to cough with profuse clear phlegm take Xiao Qing Long Wan.

Personalized herbal formula will be needed with confirmed COVID 19.
