It is important to stay healthy and safe during the coronavirus outbreak. While it is best to stay home, there are some things you can do. You will want to make sure to always practice social distancing. This means you should stay at least six feet from other people. If you need to cough or sneeze, make sure to do so in your elbow. This will help prevent the germs from spreading. You are able to go out and drive and enjoy the fresh air. If you do so, make sure that your vehicle is up to date on the maintenance and inspections that it might need. This way it will be in the best condition when you need to drive.
If you are not sure how often the vehicle should be maintained, make sure to look at the owner’s manual. You can also contact us and we can advise a schedule for you. Make sure that your vehicle has the tires properly inflated. This is beneficial as you want to drive and enjoy the scenery outdoors. You will also want there to be the correct amount of oil in the vehicle. If the oil is getting old, you may notice some pollutants in it. Remember to follow the recommendations for oil changes. At the same time, we can also change the oil filter of it as well. If you hear any unusually noises, it will be best to bring the vehicle in.
When going out for essential things like groceries, make sure that you call ahead to the store you are going to. Hours of many businesses have changed, so it is best to know what to expect.
