Amid rising cases of the new variant Omicron in the country, health officials have advised people to take all necessary steps to prevent its spread. In view of the manner in which this fast-spreading variant Omicron is spreading, there is a need for everyone to adopt rules according to covid. This means you need to wear a mask, follow social distancing and hygiene rules, plus you need to be especially safe in certain places. Let us know which places you need to be especially careful.

Take special care of security in these places

1. Avoid the use of public transport

Yes, this is true because public transport can become a center of infection. Whether you are traveling by air or going anywhere by train and bus, you need to take special care that by doing so you are not only putting yourself at risk but also other people suffering from the virus. especially if you do not have any symptoms but are infected. 

The rate of spread of the virus and the risk of spreading it from patients without symptoms can put you at increased risk while traveling. Any kind of public travel in these days can be risky as you cannot keep a distance of 6 feet from others anywhere. Apart from this, you can touch contaminated surfaces in these places, which can be the biggest risk of spreading the virus.

2. Avoid going to crowded restaurants

The Omicron variant of the coronavirus is highly contagious and can spread through close contact, which is why it is advised to avoid crowded places. Also, you should avoid going to closed rooms or places where there is no air passage. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), this is because aerosols are trapped in the air in these places and you communicate by staying close to each other, which keeps the risk of spreading the virus. For this reason, avoid eating inside crowded restaurants as it is very unsafe, especially in the case of Omicron.

3. Attending a wedding or gathering at a space with less space

New Year's party may be over, but people always find different reasons to party and have fun. But if you are having a party at your home and inviting a lot of people to it, then it might be a bad idea for you. As it has already become clear that coronavirus is a very fast-spreading virus that can spread in the air, can also prove to be dangerous for you. So remember that any indoor gathering can be very effective because during this time people laugh, shout, sneeze and all these things are a sign of virus spread.

4. Do not go to the salon for a haircut

If you are going to get a haircut in the salon then wait a while as it may not be a good idea these days. Going to the salon for a haircut can put you at risk as you are not only breathing air in front of your barber or stylist but also getting too close to them. Wearing a mask may protect you from infection, but it is not 100% safe.
