Therefore, it is important to have a mask always on hand in case you need to talk to someone.

Avoid touching door handles

The best way to avoid touching door handles is to wear gloves, but if gloves are not available, the best option for opening the door is to use a disinfectant wipe as a separation between the handle and your hand. If a wipe is not available, you can also use the sleeve of your shirt or jacket, but remember to wash your clothes immediately after returning home. Such items as door handles seem harmless, but the truth is that a door handle in a public place can sometimes have more bacteria in a day than the average toilet.
