We’ve gotten used to the idea that there’s a virus out there and many aspects of our lives will not be the same, at least for a while. We’ve got the masks to protect us in indoor venues, in crowded places where social distancing is not an option, we’ve got strict hygiene rules in restaurants and supermarkets, but what about our homes?
Even after the coronavirus pandemic subsides, we might still need to be wary of certain things we allow into our homes. According to health experts, here are 10 things you’ll never bring in your home after the coronavirus pandemic is over.
Remember that old teddy bear you got from your friends to cheer up your children or grandchildren? What about that secondhand puzzle from your neighbor’s yard sale? You thought nothing of it when you got them back then, but now, in the times of the coronavirus, you might want to give up such habits and keep used items out of your home.
“The coronavirus pandemic has taught us that kids are especially likely to be carriers of certain diseases and illnesses that can harm adults. So, avoiding buying secondhand toys is a good call, as it’s unclear where those toys have been before, and they can later easily wind up in your child’s mouth,” says health and wellness expert Linda Morgan.
