Everyone wants to make sure that they and their family members are safe from COVID-19. This concern leads to countless questions filling our minds. Is it enough to wear masks and sanitizers? Is it safe to order groceries online? Was the delivery person healthy and safe? How do we keep coronavirus out of a home?
Don’t worry! You are certainly not the only one stuck amidst these worries. Right now, we are all facing the same issues. Here are some of the best tips to keep coronavirus far away from your home sweet home.
Try not to let the virus find a way to your home
First and foremost, to keep yourself and your home safe, try not to let the virus find its way into your house. Even if you are reporting to an office for work, make sure to follow every COVID-19 guideline given by the government and doctors.
It is important to protect yourself from the virus, but even more important if you live with other people. As we all know by now, coronavirus can spread quickly and one needs to take every precaution so it doesn’t find a way in the home. Wear masks whenever you leave your house, keep a sanitizer in your pockets all the time and use it often, maintain a proper distance from people, and avoid touching railings or any outside objects as much as possible.

It is customary to wash hands and remove footwear before entering any temple. So, view your home as your temple and make sure you always wash your hands before touching anything when you come from outside. Washing hands is one of the most important COVID-19 prevention guidelines. In addition, practice removing your shoes outside your house and, if possible, try to keep your shoes in sunlight for a while now and then. Sunlight has proven to kill bacteria and viruses.
Disinfect anything and everything
