7 Important Measures to Make Social Distancing More Effective

7 Important Measures to Make Social Distancing More Effective

As we come out of the lockdown, we’re noticing a gap between what used to be normal and what the new normal will be. That gap is called social distancing.

While the safest thing to do is still staying indoors, if you must step out, these are the things you must keep in mind.

1. Wear a Mask and Gloves

Like your phone, wallet and keys, don’t leave home without them. Yes, wearing masks can hurt the ears. And yes, wearing gloves makes using your phone trickier. But compared to the risk of catching coronavirus and spreading it to others, these are just minor inconveniences.

2. Carry a Sanitiser

Always keep a hand sanitiser nearby. And like you have a habit of reaching for your phone every now and then, reach for that sanitiser as well and use it (a sanitiser spray to apply on your phone, keyboard and workspace will also help).

3. Maintain a Six Feet Distance

Remember those awkward times when you’re not sure whether you should hug a person or just shake their hand? Well, now you can maintain a six feet distance, just raise your eyebrows and say “‘sup?”. So, while you’re doing your part in eliminating COVID-19, all that awkwardness will also be eliminated.

4. Keep Your Hands Off Your Face

Your nose, mouth and eyes are the main entry points of the coronavirus into your body. By keeping your hands away from them, you’ll be reducing the chances of you getting infected. So sorry, that itchy nose will have to itch just a little longer.

5. Be Careful while Using Public Transport

If public transport is the only way to get around, you have to take some extra precautions. In the metro or bus, make sure that you are sitting away from co-passengers. And if it is too crowded, wait for the next one, even if it means being late to work. In times like these, your boss shouldn’t mind.

6. Carry Toothpicks and Tissues

Not to clean your teeth and lips, of course (we’re sure you have a magical smile). But a toothpick is a safe tool to press any buttons, especially when using an elevator. And using a tissue paper while opening door knobs will also reduce transmission.

7. Pay Using Payment Apps

If you have cash in your wallet, let it stay there if possible. Pay for things using e-payment apps on your phone wherever it’s accepted, instead of using notes and coins which will require physical contact. The money will be transferred, but not the coronavirus.

It’s tough to put a positive spin on the situation because the situation itself is tough. But times like these bring people together. And that’s what we’re all about at Stanza Living. 

So, till the day we’re in this situation, and even after that, we’re #InItTogether.
