The Coronavirus outbreak that started in December is still in effect with over crore cases worldwide. The virus has changed our lives completely. Social gatherings, travelling and even going out for a meal has become a risky affair.
With the lockdown being lifted and the quarantine restrictions mellowed down, a self-quarantine only happens when a person is tested positive for coronavirus. A person who has been tested positive has to stay at home and perform self-quarantine along with everybody in the house irrespective of the results. That means nobody from the same house can go out until the tests come out negative again.
According to the new government restrictions, there are few things you should consider while self-quarantining:
Can I get my car serviced?
The short answer is no. if you have been told to self-quarantine, you will not be allowed to leave the home. Getting anywhere near your car won’t be allowed especially if you are living in an apartment building. If your service is due, it is advised to get it done once your quarantine period is over.
Self-servicing and Cleaning the car
If you are living in an apartment building, self-servicing won’t be possible. For cleaning or self-servicing you can call for help and pay them virtually once the job is done. But if you prefer to be present while the process is happening, you may have to wait till the quarantine is over.
On the other hand, if you own a private home or a bungalow, and if your car is inside the gate in the garage, you can probably self-service or clean the car on your own. As long as you don't get out of the main gate, it shouldn't be a problem. We do recommend staying at home and resting up nevertheless.
Grocery and Essential Shopping
If you have been tested positive, all your essential needs are taken care of by the government. The groceries are brought to your home weekly and the regular checkup is done almost daily.
If you have been just told to home quarantine without being tested, you can ask your neighbours and people around you to buy the essentials for you and perform contactless delivery. Apart from that, you can also order online and opt for contactless deliveries at home. A lot of the vendors and shops have started opting for contactless home deliveries. So opting for those can help as well.
Accepting deliveries for the new car
If you have placed an order for a car and have been told to self-quarantine after, you can always call the dealership to hold off on deliveries till the quarantine is over. If you have ordered the car online, you can contact the customer service for the same. If you live on private property like a private home or bungalow, you may be able to receive the home delivery of your car. Provided you perform a contactless delivery while receiving the car.
If you have been tested positive, you and your family should stay at home. Resting and building your immunity is the only solution for this pandemic.
