Public transportation is a necessity for people around the world, including during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, passengers must take special precautions to prevent themselves from contracting the virus while traveling.
Many of us have been working from home for the past few months – a necessary response as the initial coronavirus spreads across the country. Maybe now you are getting ready to go back to the office.
We are slowly stabilizing on the new normal, but the new coronavirus has not gone away. And with public health officials continuing to recommend social distancing and wearing fabric face masks, you may be wondering what precautions to take when you return to work.
You already know the basics of infection control that have kept you healthy through the many cold and flu seasons in the office, such as: B. Washing your hands, covering your cough, and staying home when you are sick. But if the past few months have taught us anything, coronavirus is a much stronger adversary than the common cold or seasonal flu. Here are some healthy tips to prevent COVID 19 virus.
Strengthen your immune system through a proper diet
Increase your fruit and vegetable consumption with at least five servings a day. They are high in vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants to help fight infection. Eat legumes at least three times a week: they’ll stay long and are inexpensive, and will help you stay healthy as they are high in protein and iron.
Don’t just buy non-perishable foods
Instead of buying lots of pasta and rice, buy fruits, vegetables, and legumes. Have you bought additional fruits and vegetables? No problem: clean, cut and freeze. You are ready for your next preparation.

Not only does this show compassion for other people who need to stock up on goods, but it also helps you avoid food waste and improve the economy in your home.
Don’t throw away your leftovers
If you cook too much, freeze your meals to make them last longer to avoid wastage and easily prepare them for another occasion. Remember: the food must be in good condition to be consumed!
Drink much water
Drink at least 2 liters of water every day to stay hydrated and support your immune system.
Make the most of your budget
If you are on a tight budget, we recommend giving preference to water over sugary drinks. You can also replace eating cookies, snacks, and pastries with fresh fruits and vegetables as these will keep you healthier and more nutritious.
Cook with your kids
The narrowness that many of us find ourselves in is also an opportunity to cook at home and involve children in this activity so that they learn healthy eating habits from a young age.
Keep your distance and avoid gathering in groups
The most likely way COVID-19 spreads is person to person – mostly between people who are in close contact with each other. This means that social distancing is just as important today as it was when the COVID-19 pandemic began. When a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes, or speaks, the breath droplets expelled can infect anyone within a six-foot radius. And since a large number of people infected with the virus still have no symptoms, the virus can spread without even knowing you have it. This means that it is important to limit personal contact with your co-workers when you return to the office.
