Baby2Baby has been asking people for help to provide essentials to families in need since the outbreak began. On Thursday, they provided an update on Instagram.

"Baby2Baby has been working around the clock providing basic necessities to children and families impacted by COVID-19. Over the last five days, with your support, we have distributed over 1 million items including diapers, formula, hygiene and blankets.

Helping charities remotely is a great way for people to do their part to help others while also practicing social distancing and remaining in their homes.

The CDC suggests limiting interactions with other people as much as possible and only going out for essentials as needed.

In addition, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
