It’s important to use Swype Shield anytime you are going to enter an environment that is crowded or frequented by numerous people.
If you’re thinking, “that’s just about everywhere,” you’re right!
That’s why it’s important to add Swype Shield to your daily routine. It only takes a few seconds to apply, and provides hours of invisible protection.
We recommend you apply Swype Shield in the morning while you’re getting ready, during lunch (a tube in your lunch bag will remind you), and in the late afternoon (ie, before you leave work).
Here are some key locations to remember to Swype Shield before visiting:
|Around Town||At Work||When Traveling||At School|
|Gas Stations||Elevators||Trains||Locker Rooms|
You’re never ‘home free’ as members of your household bring in viruses and bacteria. Once a cold or flu enters a household, others get sick.
Young children are especially susceptible to illness because their immune systems are not mature, and they like to touch everything and put everything in their mouth. This is why they typically get more than twice the number of colds per year than adults. You may be thinking that it would be difficult to get your children to apply Swype Shield three times a day, but just remember that it’s a lot easier than making them wash their hands for 20 seconds after every time they touch something! Cold viruses are neutralized by mouth enzymes. But we infect ourselves by also touching the skin around our nose. Every time we touch something we reintroduce viruses on our ends, thus negating the use of hand washing unless we wash constantly. Swype Shield lasts for hours, acts at the entry site and thus protects for hours.
Swype Shield is also important for health care facilities and office workers since they work in environments where viruses and bacteria spread very quickly. In a survey conducted by Thomson Reuter’s health unit, nearly three-quarters of respondents said they went to work sick in the last year! Patients visit health care facilities because they are sick, thus bringing illness to the workers in the facility.
We all try to keep free from germs in our daily lives by washing our hands frequently. The truth is, no matter how good you are about washing your hands, they only stay clean until the next time you touch something/someone!
Airplanes, buses, trains and subways provide constant exposure with many individuals so the chance of the spread of colds and flu is very high.
Everyone can benefit from Swype Shield. Don’t wait until your next cold or flu to add Swype Shield to your routine. Begin today!
