Gradually, the world returns to ordinary life, various establishments, salons, shops are opening. Clinical pharmacologist, candidate of medical sciences Andrei Kondrakhin explained to Vechernyaya Moskva how to behave in public places in order to avoid being infected with coronavirus.
Rospotrebnadzor has published recommendations for businesses in the face of persisting risks of the spread of COVID-19. For example, in cinemas, tickets will be sold in such a way that the distance between the audience is at least 1 m, and the screenings will run at intervals of at least 10-15 minutes. At the same time, it will be possible to enter the cinema 15 minutes before the start of the film. According to the order, in any public places, visitors must be wearing masks and gloves. In this case, this means that after a pandemic, viewers will have to give up their usual drinks and popcorn while watching: it is impossible to eat with a mask on your face, and you certainly should not take food with your gloved hands. Now everything is separate: we watch movies in the cinema, and we eat popcorn at home.
In fitness centers, visitors will also be forced to wear masks, explained Andrei Kondrakhin. In addition, employees will have to monitor the timely disinfection of simulators. The projectiles should now be 1.5m apart from each other. And each visitor, having finished the exercises, must disinfect everything he touched. Do not forget about gloves: the doctor advises taking cotton gloves to the gym. Otherwise, palms will sweat and the remedy will do more harm than good. Also, you must not touch your face: to wipe off the sweat, you must bring a clean towel with you to the hall. Swimming lovers will be more fortunate than others - the water in the pools is chlorinated, and this is enough not to get infected.

Shopping malls, especially cosmetics stores, will become one of the most dangerous places. Now the threat of infection through the lipstick tester is becoming apparent, and especially often visitors are holding perfume samples in their hands. The doctor does not recommend using them: when the aroma is sprayed, breathing quickens, so if a patient with COVID is nearby, the likelihood of infection will increase dramatically.
The best option for going to a clothing store is to remember the size and buy clothes without trying them on. You can admire yourself in the mirror at home, says Andrey Kondrakhin, and if the clothes don't fit, you can always return them.
It will not be easy for those wishing to visit a beauty salon. You need to come strictly at the appointed time and do not remove the mask during the procedures. The doctor recommends taking the necessary tools from home whenever possible. When performing procedures, specialists must wear respirators, disposable hats and gowns and change them every couple of hours.
