Keep hand sanitizer with you and wash your hands before eating. Avoid shaking hands with people and try to avoid touching your face and mouth with unwashed hands. and of course wear a face mask
2. Maintain Social Distancing
Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between you and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth that may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in droplets, including the COVID-19 virus, if someone who is coughing has the disease. WHO
3. Touch as little as possible in public places
Be especially careful about touching things in busy airports, train stations, and other public transportation systems. It is inevitable that we will touch our face but be more careful in public places. Also, be more careful while eating, always wash your hands before eating and do not share snacks from packets or bowls used by others.
