New Normal Essentials

Carry These 4 Things with You to Reduce The Spread of COVID-19

1. Face Covering or Mask

The WHO and CDC recommend wearing a mask. It’s one of the most important essentials you can carry with you today. It helps stop your respiratory droplets from spreading in the air when talk, cough sneeze or breathe. In this day and age, the evidence is clear - masks save lives. If everyone wears a mask, the chance of getting COVID-19 is greatly reduced.


2. Hand Sanitizer

Another new essential when you’re on the go is a hand sanitizer. Ideally, washing your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water is the most effective way to get germs off your hands. But, when you’re outside and soap and water is nowhere to be found, using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol will suffice.


3. Sanitizing Wipes

When you need to wipe down a shopping cart, door handle or keyboard a travel-sized pack of eco-friendly sanitizing wipes can come in handy. You can also use these wipes to clean off your phone before using it.


4. Smartphone for contactless payment

Another helpful tip: having a smartphone or smartwatch capable of contactless payments helps create one less contact point where COVID-19 can be spread.



Did you know that our Atom X Sling comes with a self-sanitizing front pocket? It has an anti-microbial copper/silver lining to keep your essentials clean. The copper and silver nanoparticles are naturally antimicrobial and kill many bacteria, fungi and viruses a few seconds after they come into contact with these elements.

This makes the Atom X Sling the perfect essentials bag when you leave the house during the pandemic.
