Wikipedia defines “Etiquette is the set of conventional rules of personal behaviour in polite society, usually in the form of an ethical code that delineates the expected and accepted social behaviors that accord with the conventions & norms observed by a society, a social class, or a social group.

Why is it important, especially in the current situation?

  • To avoid being exposed to this virus
  • Be safe and stay safe
  • Join hands to fight against this pandemic.
Safe Home Inspection Process

Basic steps:

  1. Avoid Handshake – The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Follow Indian traditional way of Namaste instead. Don’t feel bad about not shaking hands, you are not being disrespectful. You are only trying to keep everyone healthy & safe. 
  2. Maintain social distance – Maintaining good social distance (about 6 feet) is very important in preventing the spread of the virus.
  3. Wear a mask – Cover your mouth & nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Take utmost precaution while disposing the tissues in the trash. Wear a mask (if need be) which avoids the contact of respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. 
  4. Hand wash – A person can get the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his/her own mouth, nose or eyes. Wash your hands frequently with soap for about 20 seconds in flowing water or use an alcohol-based (~60%) hand sanitizer.
  5. Hand Gloves – Wear hand gloves while you are stepping out of the house in case of need. Be responsible & cautious while throwing the gloves into a trash container after you are back home and wash your hands immediately. If no gloves are worn, be sure to wash your hands. 
  6. Work From Home – Avoid face to face meetings, travel to the workplace or anywhere outside unless there is a dire need. Adapt to work from home, connect with your team/clients online using various Audio/Video apps. 
  7. Stay home – Avoid visiting public / crowded places or social gatherings to a large extent. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and be sure to wash your hands after you are back home from super market / bazaars. 
  8. Clean and disinfect – Clean and disinfect frequently the surfaces/areas touched daily which includes the groceries that are delivered to your door steps.
  9. Stay up to date – Do not panic, watch TV news or follow other media channels to keep updated on what’s happening outside your home.
