Bring hand sanitizers and wipes. Use them every time you touch something. For example, right after touching handrails, doors surfaces on the metro elevator buttons before you eat outside, etc.
Remember that many people have just touched that elevator button right before you, and viruses can stay on the surfaces for days. Use wipes to sanitize surfaces that you're about to use. Don't touch your face. One of the main ways the virus spreads is when you touch your nose, eyes, or mouth, use tissues or your sleeve when coughing and wear a mask, especially indoors and when you're close to other people.
