Always step out of your home with a mask and a face shield.

Apart from carrying a small bottle of hand sanitiser in your bag, keep a bigger bottle to sanitise your vehicle.

While travelling to a different city, make sure all your bookings are done in advance.

Make it a point to carry a recently-done COVID-19 test while travelling.

Apart from maintaining distance, make sure you don’t eat too much outside. You can carry small meals for yourself in a separate bag.


Never forget your safety gears at home. If you do and there is no provision for you to go back, then buy new ones from the market.

Don’t socialise too much. While going on a trip, don’t get too friendly with your co-passengers.

If you are travelling and have decided to grab a meal, then do not indulge in a conversation while eating. Talk only after you are done eating and have put your mask on.

Do not use too much sanitiser. While at your hotel, make sure that you wash your hands using a soap. Use sanitiser only when there is no provision of washing hands.

Do not fiddle with things you buy. If you go on a shopping spree while on a trip, then keep the things you purchase untouched at least for 24 hours.

These simple tips will not only save you from the deadly disease but will also protect others.
