The 3 new must-have items in your bag to combat the coronavirus

Gone are the days where the simple pat down of; “phone, wallet, keys” will do the trick. Nowadays it’s a bad idea to leave the home without these 3 newly fundamental items

1. Hand Sanitisers

Hand Sanitiser + Regular Washing = Safe Environment

In order to protect yourself and prevent the spread of the coronavirus, washing your hands regularly and properly disinfecting them has never been so important. This has meant that offices and workplaces have started placing hand sanitiser strategically around their businesses to ensure hygiene and combat the virus. 

Even on an individual level to have clean hands, people should have their own hand sanitiser. It’s just become something essential, since even the weakest kill 90% of germs and harmful bacteria. Plus, thankfully they are practical, with so many options all perfectly designed for your bag or pocket. 

So, you need your own hand sanitiser, but which one should you pick? Luckily, we have a helpful little guide for that. 

2. Gloves

The Gloves Come On

Luckily gloves aren’t required to be worn at all times. However, at this point it is better to be safe than sorry. So, make sure to have a pair on you just in case. In some fields or professions it has become advised or essential to wear them. 

Fortunately, this is not the case in your private life. Having said that, if you suddenly run out of sanitiser, or really don’t like the idea of touching the pole on public transport, maybe wearing disposable gloves wouldn’t hurt.

If you are using disposable gloves, make sure to get rid of them properly: In a closed off bin.

3. Face masks

Somebody Stop Me! 

When on public transportation or visiting hospital, it is now required for you to wear a face mask. Therefore, it would make sense for you to keep one on you. After all, you never know when you might have to get somewhere quickly, or the heavens may decide to open. 

And, if you are required to have a face mask on you, why not have your very own? Why would you need a personalised face mask? Well, if you have to keep using disposable masks, not only do they not have tight fit protection, but start to become uncomfortable after prolonged use and have to be thrown away.

Remember, if you wear a disposable mask, throw it instantly away in a closed trash bin. If you wear a reusable face mask, you should wash it. If you can not wash your mask right after using it, place it in a hermetic box and wash it when you can.
