01 Jan Necessary safety measures in residential societies
Housing societies are inhabited very extensively. People live really close by. Hundreds or even thousands of families live very close to us and use many common amenities, such as the gym, swimming pool, jogging track, etc. That is why it is difficult to manage social distances in a housing complex. You may also use the same elevator or stairs as many others, building entry, touching the same handrails or elevator buttons. And, although we all know, the viruses will last for 24-7 hours on these surfaces.
How can people in housing societies protect themselves?
- Because of the close vicinity in which individuals live, it is difficult to be fully alone in a housing estate.
- Would that mean that you have to live in utter fear of catching the disease? No, you can do a few things that will keep you and your loved ones safe.
- Resident guidelines
- Clean your hands properly with soap and water any time you touch something outside your apartment, be it elevator buttons or groceries.
- Avoid areas that are noisy. Do not be a member of any events within the housing community, no matter how small.
- In your housing community, stay away from anybody that looks ill. Call them to ask about their health later.
- If you have a headache or a sore throat, isolate yourself automatically. Contact a healthcare provider if the symptoms escalate.
- Don’t visit places like the gym and swimming pool that are popular.
- If anyone has come in from overseas or some other state in your housing society, ask them to get checked for COVID-19. They must also remain quarantined for at least 2 weeks in their homes.
- Ensure you eat healthily. Within your apartment, workout daily. Such interventions will strengthen your immunity.
Guidelines for staff
- For all times, the security officers and other personnel must wear masks.
- They should have a stock of hand sanitizers to scrub their hands with, or soap and water.
- They can keep a distance of 1 metre from persons, such as the newspaper boy or pharmacy delivery guy, coming in from outside.
- If a guard has been named lately, contact the security service to inquire where he was posted before he came here. For the welfare of the guard as well as yours, this knowledge is important.
- Inform your domestic help about all the protective precautions being taken and ensure that he/she still follows them.
Caring for pets.
There is no proof that COVID-19 can be contracted or transmitted by pet animals. But to be healthy, make sure all the vital vaccines have been given to your cat. Once each week, give it a shower with deworming soap. When it is time for a veterinarian appointment, whether it is an emergency, cancel it. If you have a puppy, walk your dog every day inside the apartment and invite all the dog-owners to do the same in the housing community.
People in housing communities, whether they strictly obey the guidelines, will defend themselves from coronavirus. To preserve their health, they should stay home and uphold good levels of personal hygiene. After someone coughs or sneezes, the viruses will also linger suspended alive as spores in the air. And if the infection is transmitted by any one of the many residents living in a housing complex, there is a great risk it will spread like wildfire.
