During the height of this pandemic crisis, it may seem that normalicy is a long way away. The days of in-person meetings, hugging your friends, and playing sports are not gone, but new rules have taken their place. Some of these will be temporary. Some new rules will last. Take a look below at these “new rules” and let us know if there are any additional ones you practice!

  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. This is not a bad idea to do regularly with or without a pandemic.
  • Social distancing: Avoid mucous particles. As a bonus, you can save some money on deodorant and improve personal relationships!
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Continue to avoid catching COVID-19.
  • Avoid touching your face: Decrease the likelihood of infecting yourself. It can also improve your complexion!
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Now is the perfect time to apply – and invest in – hand cream.
  • Stand behind tape: Follow the arrows when out of house. Help to keep pathogens at a distance while no longer getting lost in grocery stores!
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. You may also consider trimming your nails while you’re there.
  • Wear mask: Avoid inhaling infectious microbes. Save on make-up while simultaneously making it harder to recognize your friends who you shouldn’t be socializing with anyway!
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Consider more lather + less rinsing to avoid hurting yourself from over-scrubbing.
  • Cough into your armpit: Avoids spread of germs. This entertains observers as you only have to reach your elbowpit.
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. This is an excuse to combine multiple hand creams into your own world-renowned creation.
  • Sneeze into your elbowpit: Avoids spread of germs. While not required, you should still use toothpaste, mouthwash, and breathmints. If you smell bad breath, it’s only your own.
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Enjoy the chance to actually to be touched by another living creature – even if it is yourself.
  • Remove your clothes upon coming home: Avoid sharing germs with family. Be careful not to surprise unannounced guests in the kitchen.
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Consider a quick prayer since your hands are already together.
  • Jump in the shower after a quick entry home: Wash away germs. Enjoy your own singing since nobody else should be around.
  • Wash your hands: Wash away germs. Reminds me of what the first reason was.
