Update on COVID-19
Statement from us and various tips and ideas from independent sources and various partners.
As we all know, the world is facing a tough situation with COVID-19. For parents dealing with school, event and office closures while still looking after the family, this is certainly a new time for all of us, including our team here at Reima.
We understand all of this can become overwhelming. That’s why we’re sharing UNICEF’s best practices and precautions in the images below and their guide on how to talk with your children about COVID-19.
What remains most important is our children’s safety and health. Our Scandinavian philosophy remains, getting children outdoors can boost the well being of our children - and ourselves. We believe kids need to get outside and be active at least once a day to let out excess energy and get some fresh air - especially if they’re not going to school or daycare.
During this time it is important to remember and encourage time for play. Consider taking your children on nature walks, to the beach or playing in the yard rather than to busy parks or group play dates. Be sure to wash your hands anytime you return inside.
This site will remain open where you can still visit 24/7. As of now, our clothes can still be delivered and tried on safely at home. We have constant updates from our partners and if there is any issue, we will ensure the safety of everyone involved and will keep our customers informed if anything changes. By making small changes together, we can make a big difference to help the world overcome this challenge.
See below on some of UNICEF’s best practices, fun activities and where you can help donate to those who need it the most!
Unicef’s Best Practices
- Teach your kids to wash their hands with plenty of soap for at least the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
- Teach kids to cough and sneeze into a tissue or to cough and sneeze into their arm or elbow, not their hands.
- Seek medical core early if your child has a fever, cough or difficulty breathing.
- Keep your kids away from others who are sick or keep them home if they are ill.
