3 Tips to Stay Safe & Maintain Personal Hygiene in Public Spaces

What have you gained this period over the last 6 months? Be it newfound cooking skills, a regular exercise routine or more family time, I’m sure everyone has gained better personal hygiene!

Now that things are gradually opening up, here  are some tips for you to continue staying safe (even when others aren’t).

1. Mask Up!

Wearing a mask significantly reducing transmission rates as proved by many scientific researchers across the globe. An experiment conducted by A*STAR clearly explains why too!



  • When someone is sick and coughs or sneeze without wearing a mask, the droplets produced contain viruses that can travel 2-3m.
  • When these droplets land on someone else face or even on a surface that is subsequently touched by a later unfortunate party, it may make that party sick.
  • When worn the mask correctly, most of these droplets are blocked and hence reducing transmission of viruses.

2. Protect Your Face

For the full package, try using a face shield as well! Not only does it protect other’s droplets from ruining your perfect skincare routine, but also prevents you from unconsciously touching your face.

“What do you mean unconsciously?”

Well, did you know it is estimated that people touch their face close to 23 times per hour? Unwashed hands carry viruses, bacteria and other germs that when in contact with the membranes on our face, can cause the transfer of these germs, leading to a spread of viruses and infection.

3. Avoid Touching Surfaces!

Having completed your outfit with your mask and face shield, you should still avoid touching surfaces. Here’s why.

Virus can survive on surfaces from between three hours to seven days, depending on the material of the surface

  • Glass - 5 days.
  • Wood - 4 days.
  • Plastic & stainless-steel - 3 days.
  • Cardboard - 24 hours.
  • Copper surfaces - 4 hours.

How should you then open a door or press a button without touching them? If only there was something that could do that for you...
