Ever since the pandemic started, everyone has had to adjust to the restrictions that are being implemented so that everyone’s safety can be ensured. A lot of people thought that this pandemic wouldn’t take so long and would last for only a few weeks, or if not, maybe for a few months, but it has been years already. And it’s like the virus isn’t going anywhere–or it won’t go anymore. And we, people, have to get used to being like this. We have to get used to the new normal. Especially now that face-to-face classes are being implemented.
Face-to-face classes are now being administered. Finally, after two years of online class regulation, the students are going back to an actual class. And everyone is excited about it.
Of course, safety must be ensured. So here are the face-to-face essentials that every student needs to have under the new normal.
Under the new normal, it is essential to bring your own alcohol. Sanitizing your hands is the most important thing, especially when you are outside. During face-to-face classes, your hands will touch a lot of things, and to be safe, you have to make sure that you are free from any germs, bacteria and viruses. So bringing alcohol would save you from getting these.
Using masks and bringing an extra should also be a practice. Studies show that wearing a mask reduces the spread of the virus by preventing respiratory droplets from traveling into the air. And COVID-19 is believed to spread mostly through these droplets. This is why it is important to use a mask and bring an extra one just in case.
You should also have wipes in your bag, whether they are wet wipes or regular wipes. These wipes can be used for cleaning your cellphones as they carry a tremendous number of germs, which is why everyone should get into the habit of cleaning and sanitizing them just like we do our hands to avoid the spread of the virus.
So, don’t forget to bring these things when you are about to go to school, okay?
