Almost all restrictions were lifted in England on Monday, which was dubbed “Freedom Day”. Meanwhile, in the U.S., the CDC eased its Covid guidelines on masks for fully vaccinated people on May 13, saying they didn’t need to use them or stay 6 feet apart, “except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”
How To Deal With Covid Restrictions Uplifting Anxiety
1. Respect Others
Be aware of personal space and personal choice, Spector said on Monday as “Freedom Day” dawned in England. “Some people might not be ready to hug, kiss, shake hands or reduce social distance. Don’t assume what people are comfortable with. Instead, ask them and respect their personal choices.” “With limited guidance from the government on where and when we should be wearing face covering, respect people’s choices. If wearing a mask makes someone feel safer, then they have every right to continue wearing one,” Spector said.
2. Socialize Outside
“Fresh air means very small droplets and aerosol particles that contain infectious virus can’t hang around and disperse quickly so open air spaces are the best places to be with friends and family,” Spector said.
3. Wear a Mask
It is better to be wearing a mask in a crowded area. This will keep you calm and safe too.
4. Practice Good Hygiene
Keep on practicing good hygiene. Keep your home clean and was your hands at regular intervals.
5. Get Your Second Shot
It is important that you should get the second dose of vaccine. One dose is not enough, you need to get that second shot.
6. Know The Covid Symptoms
The “classic” Covid symptoms were a persistent cough, loss of taste and smell, fatigue and a sore throat (and variations on this theme), but analysis by the Zoe Covid Study has identified new common symptoms. Runny nose, Headache, Sneezing, Sore Throat, Loss of Smell.
7. Log Any Covid Symptoms You Get
“By continuing to log your symptoms, your contributions can help us to stay at the forefront of discovering the current top symptoms indicating COVID infection pre and post-vaccine,” it notes. The data can also help experts find out how effective the vaccines are working long-term and could also help determine whether or not booster vaccines may be a requirement in the fall.
