We should adopt new norms of cleanliness on returning home

We should all adopt similar routines on coming home. Shoes should be left close to the door. Any rubbish and disposable masks we have accrued should be bagged and placed in plastic bags. As many outer clothes as possible left in hall way. Hands then washed and if possible alcohol sprayed. If we have been in contact with many people for a long period, ie school, large group, or work bubble, then clothes should be shed as near as possible to the hall , passed to washing machine or kept near hall area, and a shower taken. The Japanese are good at these type of processes maybe we should pick up some of their tips.

Why the contribution is important

Incremental improvements in hygiene practices on returning home if taken up by the majority will reduce a % of transmissions.,

    I’ve adopted shoes and hand washing on arriving home and tend to shed my outer layer of clothes on return from more hazardous environments e.gl supermarket.
