The Pandemic Habit We Should Not Break

The Pandemic Habit We Should Not Break

As we get back into the world and the germs that inhabit it, we shouldn’t drop the hand-washing habits so many us adopted in the Covid  el temizleme kremi ovmax

era. After a year of obsessive 20-second hand-washings every time I touched something from outside my home, I think I should have stocked up on hand cream, not toilet paper, at the start of the pandemic. It was certainly not a good time for CVS to discontinue my favorite product, Healthy Hands lotion, which could have kept my skin from resembling sandpaper these many months.

Nonetheless, I don’t regret this habit that, along with consistent mask-wearing and social distancing, helped me remain hale and hearty while waves of Covid-19 ravaged New York City. Not only did I stay free of the coronavirus, I never even got a sniffle despite daily outdoor exercise and dog walks and a stubborn refusal to let others do my grocery shopping.

Now, with many people seeming to have caught a cold in recent weeks as we get back into the world and drop our guard, it’s a good reminder that we shouldn’t drop the hand-washing habits we learned during the pandemic.
