Aside from the human transmission of the novel coronavirus, it can also spread via air transmission, which is exactly what happens indoors. While it is suggested that you stay indoors to keep yourself and other people safe, there could be a lot of reasons why being cautious about the virus indoors is equally important.
Covid-19 spreads through respiratory droplets. So, if you are close to someone who is infected or have your vaping essentials delivered by someone who is infected, the virus could spread faster than you know. This is why sanitizing everything before bringing it into your home is extremely important. You never know who has the virus and who is spreading it.
Here are a few ways you can limit the spread of the virus indoors:
Follow the guidelines
It doesn’t matter whether you are indoors or outdoors, following the guidelines is extremely important. If someone is coming into your home from outside that is not part of your family, maintain social distance with them. Not just that, it is also equally important that you wear masks during that period. Washing hands, using sanitizers is equally important and something that you can’t forego.
If you have a parcel coming in or you just made a quick trip to the grocery store, you need to be extremely careful how you bring the items into your home. Instead of just bringing everything in, you must take your time and sanitize things beforehand. This ensures to get rid of any kind of risks that could be on the grocery or the parcel that just arrived. You can use any good quality alcohol-based sanitizer for the process. Some people even prefer to leave things in their backyard for 2-3 days before bringing them in.
Clean your house
It might seem absurd to even suggest this now but sanitizing your hands is never enough. If you want to prevent the further spread of the virus, it is extremely important that you deep clean your house once every two days. Using disinfectants to wipe down the counters is very important. Additionally, if possible, try to clean your toilet as well because even that harbors a lot of risks of spread of the virus indoors.
Enhance ventilation in the house
If your house lacks optimal ventilation, you are going to experience issues with the rapid spreading of the virus around the house. So, instead of keeping things congested inside, it is better if you keep everything spaced out with minimal furniture around. Since the virus is most likely going to thrive on the surfaces, it is better if you take your time and ventilate your house more. Keep the windows open.
