Living in a kost during the pandemic? Here are 3 ways to prevent transmission of the coronavirus while living with other people


The growing number of Covid-19 cases in Jakarta has made the government decide to implement the Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM). This means that we have to stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus.


For those of you who live in kost or coliving, you need to be more careful as you are more at risk of being exposed to the virus. So, if you undergo remote working or online lectures at your place, follow the following ways to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 virus.


Be generous with your disinfectants


Stay at home means a lot of online shopping and takeaway foods, to hinder getting contaminated from those things, you must first spray your packages and food packages with disinfectant. Don't forget to clean doorknobs, keys, cell phones, and other items after taking them out.

Apparently, the coronavirus can stick to cardboard or packaging for 24 hours. Don't forget to avoid touching your face and eye area before washing your hands thoroughly.


Using a double mask when meeting with other people


When going out of your room or to the common area, don't forget to wear a mask.

Currently, we are all advised to use double masks to minimize the possibility of transmitting the virus. And if you have to gather, try to meet in the outdoor area, not in your bedroom.


Use your own cutleries


When living at a traditional kost or coliving, you have to share the kitchen with several other tenants. Even though the cutleries are already provided, at times like this it's better if you use your own personal cutlery just to be safe.
