Try to clean and sanitize every surface that mostly gets in contact with many people like door handles, light switches, countertops, and faucets, etc.
You have to take great care if the people have to follow the same path while coming inside the house. Try to open the door which is close to the sink as before entering the home the person must wipe his hand. Stock up the sink area with soap and tissue paper and not with a cloth towel.
If you are entering your home after being in a high-risk environment like a doctor’s office or emergency room. The first thing you need to do is remove your clothes and put them straight into the washing machine. Wash them with your normal detergent and take a shower.

When you are out for shopping never touch your face, nose, mouth until you have sanitized your hand or washed your hands. If you are using your car keep it clean by wiping your steering wheel, dashboard, and door handle with disinfectant. Put the vegetable bags in your trunk and not in the car.
Once you are home, put the grocery bag aside. After sanitizing and washing your hand wipe down cartons and cans as you put them away. Put the empty bags outside into the recycle bin and clean the counter.

Covid-19 is not just like other flu in the market. It is a lethal infection with some serious consequences. As the virus lives in the air and can be easily transmitted when someone coughs or sneezes. So, it is important to stay at home and be vigilant.
8. Never leave your clothes damp –
Damp towels and clothes are an excellent site for coronavirus droplets to stay live longer than if they landed on any hard surface. It is important to wash your towel with Dettol and water. Try to use hand towels. However, every person must have a dedicated towel to avoid the infection.
