People have to use bus for travelling smaller distance

Journeys used to be a source of excitement earlier, but, in a post-Covid-19 world, travelling makes people anxious. People are trying to avoid travelling as much as possible but, there are times when travelling is unavoidable and one has to step out.

The chances of people getting infected with coronavirus increase if they are in an uninhibited contact with an infected person. So, it is quite probable that you may catch the virus if you are in a closed space with an infected person. Travellers have to use buses for covering smaller distances. Here are some do’s and don’ts that you can follow to make travel safer during your bus journey:

Do’s while travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic

  • Before you decide to travel, ensure that your body temperature is normal.

  • Use hand sanitiser whenever you touch any surface on the bus.

  • Wear a mask through the journey and ensure that your nose and mouth are properly covered with the mask.

  • Carry a surface disinfectant and spray wherever necessary. But remember that these sprays are flammable and should be used with caution.

  • Instead of booking your ticket on the counter, book it online to avoid contact with others.

  • Use your own water bottles and blankets while travelling. It is best to use materials that are not touched by others.

  • Follow all the Covid-19 protocols issued by the state government.

Don’ts while travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic

  • Avoid touching surfaces like the handle of the bus, armrest and window without disinfecting them first.

  • When you are travelling in the bus, do not remove your mask.

  • Do not discard your tissue, gloves or anything else inside the bus. Carry a polybag and discard all the used items in the same.

  • Do not touch your face or nose often. Do it only if necessary and only after sanitising your hands.
