Being fully cognisant of the fact that COVID-19 and the diagnosis thereof presently appears to be a Russian roulette of symptoms and outcomes, I'm definitely one who doesn't take this lightly, and I don't believe anyone should either.
This is precisely why in my way of working, I'd rather err on the side of caution, and with that, taking all the precautions within my power to minimise the chances of contracting and/or spreading COVID-19.
As frequently as possible, I wash my hands with soap and water, falling back on my portable stash of sanitising liquid/gel where the former isn't available.
I've maintained a habit of keeping my mask on in social contexts that require interaction. However, it's worth mentioning that my choice of kit allows me to maintain appropriate distances between myself and my subjects, with the added benefit of leaning into my candid style of photography.
Additionally, I've adjusted my shooting style to have a preference for outdoor and airy environments, to minimise possible risks.
I actively stay abreast of scientific and medical guidance and advisories as the science around COVID-19 continues to be updated - which is precisely why I made the decision early on to get vaccinated as soon as the vaccines were made available in Kenya.
As at the time of writing this, I'm double vaccinated (and standing by for my booster shot), as I continue to remain vigilant by observing hygiene practices, as well as continuing to wear a mask in enclosed shared settings.
The manner in which I operate is based on simplicity and efficiency. As such, throughout, all gear is handled only by the assigned parties, and my designated assistants where needed.
