Sunil Garodia By our team of in-house writers.

With the lockdown entering the unlock phase, many offices and business establishments will now open. Consequently, there will be a flood of people on the streets. There might be a chance that you will also have to venture out. Follow this list of do's and don'ts released by Dr. M K Sudarshan, the chairman of Covid-19 technical committee for your own safety. 

These are the things you must DO.

Try to wear a new mask every day if venturing out in public places, especially when there are people in close proximity. Always carry a hand sanitizer and a spare mask. Carry your own food and water to the office. If you are using a carpool, do not allow more than three persons in the car and five in an SUV. Avoid using the A/C and keep the windows open. Ensure that none of the passengers have Covid-19 symptoms. Thermal scanning of every person entering the office must be done by a trained person at the main gate. They must also sanitize their hands before entering. The person manning the gate must not allow anyone displaying symptoms of Covid-19 to enter the office and refer them to the nearest hospital. Face to face interactions must be avoided. Intercoms and mobile phones must be used for discussions. The distance of one metre must be maintained even at the workplace. Respiratory etiquette of sneezing or coughing in folded elbows or tissues must be maintained. Tissues must be disposed of in a closed bin. Hands must be sanitized every time after touching anything like door handles, knobs, elevator doors and buttons, railings or grab bars. Natural ventilation and lighting are recommended.

These are things you MUST NOT DO.

Do not touch your mouth, nose and eyes unnecessarily. Avoid handshakes and hugging. Avoid movement within the office. Avoid face to face interactions. Avoid sharing food and beverages. Avoid public transport if possible and if not, maintain the distance of one metre. Try to avoid or limit the use of public restrooms. Wash your hands thoroughly if you use them. Avoid rush hours and crowded places.

If we may add, venture out of the house if it is absolutely necessary. Most of the work is now being done on the phone or the internet. Use those mediums first. Go out only if it cannot be avoided.
