Wear Mask: It is important to be responsible and take mandatory precautions. The COVID-19 pandemic this year has made the use of masks a necessity and celebrate a safe Diwali.

Don’t Use sanitizer before lighting Diya/Candles: Refrain from using hand sanitizers which are alcohol-based before lighting Diya’s, candles or burning crackers, or any such thing. This is because sanitizers are inflammable and can cause fire hazards.

since most of the sanitizers are made of alcohol they can easily catch fire so you can use paper soap instead.

Try to consume fruit that is rich in vitamin c, magnesium and omega fatty acids. These nutrients help to strengthen the overall immunity of the body.
