Commute precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation has improved over the months. Workers are now going back to their offices. With so much uncertainty about public transport, how can you protect yourself from the Covid-19?
The more individualized safety suggestions are to your particular city or town, the better. Here are a few general precautions that should apply across the board:
Maintain a safe social distance if possible. Naturally, when busses or subways don’t have room there’s not much you can do. But if there is space, stay as distant from other passengers as you can.
Change your commute time. If possible, shift your commute to non-peak hours in order to reduce the congestion you encounter during your commute. Also, consider giving yourself some extra commute time in case you need to wait for a less busy bus or train to arrive.
Sanitize and wash your hands often. It’s important to sanitize your hands before and after your trip.
Wear a mask. Cloth coverings can help slow the spread.
