It’s time for a new normal now and gone are the days when we could step out without a second thought. Living at the present, all that matters is to keep distance and avoid contact. We at Gozo, as an organization, have always tried to be the kind of people who look out for each other. Acting responsible as a community is the need of the hour. Staying home is the best thing you can do to protect yourself and others. However, if you need to take an essential trip during COVID-19, below are the precautionary measures that you are recommended to follow:
Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID-19
If you think you have the virus or any related symptoms of the disease, staying home is the best way to help contain it and protect other people of the community.
Mask and sanitizer are must
A mask can help people who may have the virus (and are unaware of it) from transmitting it to others. Wear your mask before you get in the car and keep it on during the ride. Please remember to sanitize your hands before putting on, and taking off your mask.
Sanitize your hands before touching anything in the car. And please don’t leave trash behind. WHO recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds and using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. If you have to cough or sneeze, do it into your elbow.
Take the back seat
Always maintain distance between yourself and your driver. Avoid any unnecessary contact with the driver throughout the ride. Handling your own luggage and paying online for the trip is a must to help in reducing the spread of the virus!
Keep the car windows down
Keep the windows open during your ride as long as possible. This would help in increasing the air circulation in the car.
