Diwali is a time of celebration among the Hindu and Sikh communities. We all get embroiled in the infectious celebratory atmosphere with friends and family, but with so many distractions we also need to remain vigilant and stay safe.
Refrain from using hand sanitizers which are alcohol-based before lighting diyas or candles. Sanitizers are inflammable and can cause fire hazards. It is recommended by the specialists that you wash your hands with soap and water, before doing anything that involves fire.
Sanitizer bottles are common in households, and people have started keeping it handy during the Covid-19 pandemic. But, since maximum sanitizers are alcohol-based, they can easily catch fire. Therefore, keep your sanitizer bottles at a safe spot.
MAINTAIN PHYSICAL DISTANCE
Festivity is all about togetherness and strengthening bonds. But this festive season, try and adjust to the new normal and avoid meeting people physically.
Namaste is the best way to greet people right now. It is recommended that you celebrate Diwali this year by staying indoors.
DON’T FORGET YOUR MASK
It is significant to be responsible and take mandatory precautions. Covid-19 has made the use of masks necessary. Therefore, every time you step out, don’t forget to cover your nose and mouth.
