  • Pre-plan your activities. If you are leaving the safety of your home, know where you are going, plan your route and your time, look for times when less people are out to do shopping.
  • Work from home if you can. With the proper equipment and adjustments, many people can do most of their work from home. Speak to your employer if necessary.  Not all jobs can be done from home.
  • Avoid being face-to-face with people if they are not from your household
  • Avoid crowds
  • If you have to travel (for example, to work or school), think about how and when you travel
  • If you have to use public transport, you should try to avoid peak times.
