Living in a unit with multiple families on the same floor and the building as a whole is a great risk. There are so many surfaces that different people will constantly be touching especially the knobs on the lift. So how do you stay safe?
Wash or sanitise your hands
Every time you touch another person or a common surface, always wash your hands for 20 seconds, nicely scrubbing while rubbing soap and rinsing. Always keep sanitiser with you so that you don’t have to keep rushing to the sink.
Avoid touching your face
If you are living in Colombo, while apartment complexes like TRI-ZEN will be doing their best to keep clean, you are still going to touch common surfaces. SO, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth to prevent infection.
Cover your mouth
When you cough or sneeze, it is only usual that you cover your mouth. Use a tissue and dispose of it in a trash can that has a lid or sneeze into the sleeve of your jacket.
Wear a face mask
Wearing a mask is now mandatory and this applies even if you are stepping out of your apartment for a few minutes.
