So, here are some tips to enjoy Holi safely even during the pandemic:

  1. Wear A Mask, Be safe
    During the celebration, it is necessary to keep your mouth covered by wearing a mask to avoid infection. This is the best solution to keep yourself safe. Secondly, wearing glasses while playing with colours will safeguard your eyes as well.
  2. Limit your gathering
    It would be an act of intelligence to include only your family and close friends in the celebration. If you are playing in a group, then keep ample distance from them. Most importantly, try to avoid handshakes and hugging.
  3. Maintain hygiene properly
    Hand sanitation is necessary during Holi. Don’t eat anything before washing your hands or taking a shower.
  4. Play an Eco-friendly Holi
    This Holi, instead of using unhealthy, toxic colours, choose natural or homemade colours to protect your skin from unwanted allergies. Besides, by playing a dry Holi, you can avoid wastage of water and protect the environment.

Additionally, people in vulnerable age groups are recommended to keep themselves safe during this festival.
