As India figures out how to come out of lockdown safely, the world as we know it has changed. The new normal has new rules and definitions of hygiene and personal safety. With the festive season just around the corner, here are a few ways we can reduce risk, stay safe and make the most of Unlock 5.0.
When you’re outside.
- Carry a pocket UV light sanitizers and wear a mask.
Wearing a mask is a no-brainer. Keep it fixed in place to ensure you protect both yourself and your neighbours and friends. In fact, we’d go so far as to say you should never leave home without it. Relatively inexpensive and effective, there are several pocket sanitisers on the market that can save you a lot of worry and stress when it comes to handling packages or touching surfaces outdoors.
Before you come inside.
- Keep a no-contact Infrared thermometer ready.
As more and more people return to work, our ability to control who we come into contact with becomes increasingly tricky. Besides insisting on masks and handwashing, an infrared thermometer could be an invaluable precautionary measure you can undertake for anyone entering your home. A fever above 100.0 degrees can be a reliable indicator of the body trying to fight off an infection. Given the infectiousness of this pandemic, this is an easy to use tool to decide if you should permit or deny entry into your office, home, building or any other private spaces.
Once you’re inside.
3.Paint the walls of your home with Asian Paint’s Royale Health Shield.
The hygiene of our homes is top of mind today and keeping our surfaces clean needs to be easy and practical. Equipped with powerful and advanced technology, Royale Health Shield can be applied on your walls to give a new look with a colour of your choice and also give them a much needed antibacterial protection too. If a re-paint isn’t in the plans right now, consider Royale Health Shield Clear - a protective clear coat that can be applied on pre-painted interior surfaces for equally effective antibacterial protection. Easy to apply, and stunning enough to be the backdrop for all your festive celebrations, now you have every reason to get that stress-free festive update you’ve been waiting for, right away.
In fact, the revolutionary Royale Health Shield range can kill 99%# of bacteria on painted surfaces within two hours of exposure itself. The Silver Ion Technology in the paint is even recommended* by the Indian Medical Association. The combination of hygiene and aesthetics offered by the Royale Health Shield range of products ensures a safe and beautiful home.
4.Get online for some virtual fun.
As the days get colder, it might get more challenging to figure out how to do activities without risking your health. Yet avoiding the 3 C’s – crowded, closed, and close contact is more critical now than ever. Simple things like sneezing, singing, talking, and laughing, can launch minuscule respiratory droplets into the air. While staying at least six feet away is a good practice, it doesn’t work as effectively indoors where there is no proper airflow and cross ventilation.
Instead of risking a trip to a restaurant, mall or fitness centre, get online for a game, or a dinner party instead. Enjoy browsing your favourite e-shopping sites or even try an online Zumba class where you can come together safely.
5.Clean surfaces, appliances and vents.
Besides disinfecting all the surfaces in your home including laptops, phones and countertops, remember to clean out vacuum cleaner bags and air purifier filters, air conditioning vents and wash grocery shopping bags regularly. Maintaining a high level of hygiene inside your home and remembering to wash your hands every time you walk in from outside is one of the best ways to ensure you keep the virus out and keep your family safe.
These are only some of the ways we can ensure everyone’s safety and go back to having homes full of people and laughter again. Stay safe and healthy!
