Since COVID19 struck the planet and spread across the globe like wildfire, it caused nothing but turmoil and has left total destruction within its path! Life, as we knew it, became non-existent and changed for the foreseeable and we were suddenly placed in a world that had limited freedom. Restrictions were put into action that threw the population into a state of disarray, people lost their livelihoods, were limited to family contact and in the worst of outcomes were robbed of their precious time left upon this earth! Yes, the pandemic has had such a negative impact on every single person’s life and has left a big, dark cloud hovering over the world.
Now that restrictions are gradually being lifted and hopefully, the world is getting back on track in finding some sort of normality once again, people everywhere are longing to rekindle with friends and loved ones, so they can finally be in the company of their nearest and dearest after such a long, tumultuous time. It is understandable that people everywhere wish to enjoy the perks of having some sort of social life, after being confined within their own four walls for so very long!
We All Must Adapt to a Different Kind Of Normality
The fact of the matter is, the virus is set in its ways to remain prevalent maybe long into the future and it is up to us, the people of today to adapt to and adopt a new way of normal life. We may all wish to rush out to the local bar we have missed so dearly or have the mother of all house parties to celebrate freedom. However, with the fatal virus still at large, the danger of contracting the virus continues to remain high risk. Here are some tips on how you can party safely whilst fighting to stop the spread of COVID19!
It is a hard fact that the chances of contracting the virus outdoors decrease dramatically. This is because the fresh air outside disperses the virus and helps in evaporating any droplets of liquid in which the virus may be present. It is incredibly important to stick to the government guidelines on social distancing and on the number of people that you choose to congregate with too. By reducing the number of people and keeping a safe distance, you are successfully minimizing the risks of spreading COVID19.
Maybe Have a Socially Distanced Barbeque and a Good Old Slurp in the Process!
A great way to catch up with family and friends within a safer environment is by firing up the barbeque and having a good old slurp (responsibly of course). To ensure everybody remains safe, it is the smart idea to choose designated people to dish out the food and make sure they are wearing masks and gloves when serving to prevent the spread of the virus. Also to make things a lot easier, many companies now have in place a website that allows you to order your alcoholic beverages and have them delivered right to your door! So when embarking on your responsible drinking session you could opt to just order in! Saving you from a trek to the local off-license. Magic!
Keep Your Distance, Avoid Contact
It is completely understandable when you have been estranged from your closest friends and family for such a long period of time, all you wish to do is run up to them and give them a great big bear hug! However, it is essential to both your health and that of your loved ones to restrain from making any contact. It is crucial when the party is in full swing and the alcoholic drinks are flowing freely to bear the no-contact rule in mind, after all, you could be saving your own or someone else's life!
Mask-Up Whilst Mingling

It probably feels like decades since you have had a good old catch-up with everyone and you cannot wait to get into the party spirit and get the conversation going! When mingling with friends and family bear in mind to wear your mask and keep a safe social distance throughout the conversation.
