As things start to open up, it is important to be mindful of the risks of COVID-19 as you navigate the grocery store, eating out, and even going to work. We are many months into COVID-19, but much of this bear repeating. Until a vaccine is made available, we have to remember that more than 1 million (as of October 13) people have died from the virus, and that number is likely to increase in the future.
Although there is no vaccine available for this virus, people can follow some preventive steps to get rid of this deadly virus. COVID-19 is so deadly that governments across the world have made social distancing compulsory. However, if we consider the present situation, things are getting back to normal slowly, but life after the coronavirus outbreak will be different. We will all be required to make some changes in our lifestyle. If you are a working person, you will be spending a lot of time at the office or on public transportation. For the rest of us, daily life requires that we go out into public to meet our daily needs.
In such cases, the below suggestions may be ideal for helping to keep yourself safe in public places as the COVID-19 outbreak is ongoing.
Clean Your Hands With Hand Sanitizer
It does not matter whether you are in a public place or in your home, if you don’t have access to hand soap and you need to clean your hands, then an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a smart way to reduce your chances of transmitting illnesses via your skin to the food you are about to consume or other people. We have a tendency to touch our face with our hands, grab surfaces in public places, and forget to wash our hands before eating. Moreover, we shake people’s hands daily. So, it is very important to keep your hand virus-free. Alcohol-based sanitizers can instantly kill coronavirus. Moreover, you should avoid doing handshakes amid such a critical situation.
Always Avoid Crowded Place
Amid this critical situation, maintaining social distancing is very important. Therefore, you should always avoid crowded places as it will be difficult for you to maintain the suggested six feet of distance between the next person.
Don’t Touch Eyes, Nose, And Mouth
We have a tendency to touch our nose, face, and eyes. But amid the current situation, you have to avoid it. Our hands touch different surfaces and viruses can be on those surfaces. Therefore, our hands might pick coronavirus. Now, if we touch our mouth, eyes, and nose, it can transfer the virus into our body. Thus you will be infected. So, you should not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth in public places.
These are some rules that you need to follow to keep yourself safe in public places during COVID-19.
