Tips for Staying Safe in Public as States Start Reopening

It’s been eight weeks since the coronavirus pandemic first sent the U.S. into a tailspin. In that time, governors in all but eight states issued stay-at-home orders to help stop the spread of coronavirus. Now, as some states move to reopen, you may be wondering how to keep yourself and your family safe as we venture into this new normal.

Sure, most of us are in desperate need of a haircut at this point, and it’s been far too long since we’ve been able to take a leisurely stroll around TJ Maxx, but with all of the noise in the media, how do we know what’s safe and what’s not?

Many experts have expressed concern over prematurely reopening communities. But, with more than 35 states implementing reopening procedures as we speak, it’s important to know what precautions to take.

Here are some tips for staying safe at work, in stores and more, when your state begins reopening.

Reopening Safety at Work

If you’re headed back to work as a result of your state reopening, it’s important to take your safety precautions up a notch. Depending on your job, you may be exposed to dozens of people or more simply by being in the office. Now is not the time to get apathetic about hand-washing and mask-wearing, but rather, the opposite.

  • Practice social distancing as much as possible—this means going as far as waiting for the next elevator to minimize crowding, or even taking the stairs. Avoid communal areas, and take breaks outside or in your vehicle.
  • Wash your hands regularly—using soap and warm water for at least 30 seconds. Do this every time you touch a communal surface, and be mindful of door handles, elevator buttons, and hand rails.
  • Wear a face mask anytime you leave your work area. If you work in an open environment, plan on wearing your mask all day.
  • Create a routine of disinfecting your work space at different times throughout the day—when you arrive, after you take a break, and before you head home.

Reopening Safety at Restaurants

In some states, restaurants are allowed to seat patrons at 25 percent capacity. While experts still urge people to opt for takeout or delivery whenever possible, there are ways to make your restaurant dining experience safer in the coming months.

  • Wear a face mask and only remove it to eat your food.
  • Bring your own disinfecting materials to wipe down tables, seats, utensils, and menus.
  • Avoid shared spaces like the restroom.
  • Sit outside when possible, and keep your group separate from other restaurant patrons.
  • Don’t eat with your hands.
  • If you need to wait in line for service, maintain a distance of at least six feet between you and other patrons.

Reopening Safety at Stores

While essential businesses have remained open through all of the chaos, retail stores and other businesses are beginning to reopen their doors. It’s important to continue practicing social distancing, minimize your time spent in the store (meaning no escaping to Target to wander just yet), and be intentional about hand hygiene as soon as you leave.
