All lockdown imposed have been lifted, people have resumed going for work, markets and hospitals at a time when risk for catching the infection still pertains. With the onset of winter season, Coronavirus cases are expected to increase. What can be done in such a scenario? The idea is to religiously follow also COVID-19 preventive measures laid down by the government and advised by the health officials. Below mentioned are some practises people can adopt to protect themselves.

- There are several sanitization stations in the office available for everyone. Workers should also carry their own sanitizers.
- Areas touched by many like doorknobs, handles, railings, tables, lights, armrests, chairs, telephones, toilets among others should be frequently wiped clean.
- Everyone is expected to wear a mask while working in the office premises.
- Also, there should be a separate room to isolate people who are feeling sick and provision to immediately take them to hospital in case of a severe situation.
- Avoid travelling to work at peak hours.
- Health experts have advised working from home only if possible to reduce the transmission risk.
COVID-19 preventive measures at hospitals
- The first thing is to avoid going to a hospital for a check unless it is of absolute necessity.
- Kids along with others in vulnerable categories should also be not taken to hospitals.
- Keep sanitizing your hands often when present in the hospital.
- It is advised to take only one person along with the patient to the hospital.
