We can see that many benefits were given to those that have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, However much you want to take advantage of these benefits by visiting your favourite stores, you should still continue to follow the standard operating procedure implemented by the government until the day that we are fully free from COVID-19. This is because, although you are vaccinated, you can still be a carrier and spread the virus to those that are yet to be vaccinated. On the other hand, if you are not vaccinated, you need to be extra careful when you are out and about because your immune system might not be strong enough to fight the virus. That is why to reduce the risk of you and your loved ones regardless of whether you are vaccinated or not, there are a few things that you can implement in your daily lifestyle as a way to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Wash And Sanitize Your Hands Frequently
Wherever you go, before you leave the place, wash your hands. You should also wash your hands every time you use a public toilet or cough into your hands. Even when you go grocery shopping, you should wash your hands once you have unloaded them at home. This is because although the COVID-19 virus is not as serious as it was before vaccination, it is still contagious. That is why you should frequently wash your hands whenever you touch any surfaces. But sometimes washing your hands too much can cause chapped hands. If you are worried about dehydrating your hands from frequent washing, do keep a bottle of lotion in your bag so that you can use it to keep your hands moisturised after every wash. Not only that, at times, you will not have access to a sink to wash your hands. In situations like this, you should make use of hand sanitisers. Hand sanitisers are no replacement for handwashing but they are still effective in protecting yourself from the COVID-19 virus.
Disinfect Your Home Frequently
You should clean your home frequently with Dr Clo, which has been beneficial in preventing COVID-19 infections. Make sure that your surfaces are maintained clean and sanitary using a decent disinfectant that can kill COVID-19. On top of that, try not to host anybody at this period, and if you must, make sure that your guests are healthy before inviting them over to your place. This is to minimise the spread of the virus at your home because even after disinfecting them frequently, there are still chances of your surfaces being contaminated by guests that do not follow the standard operating procedures of COVID-19 when they visit your place.
Wear A Mask Every Time You Are Out And About
It is advisable that at places that are difficult to maintain your social distance, you should always wear either a disposable mask or a cloth mask. Wearing a mask blocks both your and others respiratory secretions which is the main reason for the spread of COVID-19.
