Precautions For Covid -19

Covid-19 that has been ripping apart humanity, has in many ways changed way we do things.

As a responsible organization, Sumrux is sensitive that we play our part in breaking the chain and flattening the curve - the new covid vocabulary that has become part of our normal vocabulary. 


We are grateful to you for choosing to help community and  environment and support of sustainable living. We need you to be safe during this pandemic. 

By now you have probably evolved your own precautionary measures having managed the pandemic for over 2 months. We want you to ensure you stay safe, so we have put together some tips and guidelines just in case you missed any points

Thank you for your understanding ! Hope to see you engage with our platform for more sustainable offerings in due course.

Please install the Arogya sethu App and use every time you step out or meet anyone

Please stay safe, and our best wishes to your child as he/she enters new academic year!

If you are a seller

  • Please wrap the book in newspaper and leave it aside.

  • When the buyer makes contact and is ready to pick up, please as the buyer to get his/her own bag to carry back the books 

  • If you leave in an apartment complex, you may leave the book at the security – with instructions to call you when the buyer comes to the gate. You do not want anyone else taking the book ☺

  • Please insist that the buyer wear a mask.  Please make sure you wear one too  a mask when you greet him/her.

  • Please make sure you maintain safe distance of atleast 6 feet.

  • You may leave a bottle of sanitizer at the gate before the buyer opens the gate and enters. The security at the apartment complex is probably doing this for all visitors.

  • You can ask the buyer to hold the bag and drop the books into them . Wash/sanitize your hands in case you touch the bag. 

  • Please do not accept payment in currency notes, and ask for digital payment( like Google Pay or Paytm). The currency notes are touched by many when it comes to you, and a big source of transmission of Covid.

  • When the buyer leaves, you may bring back your bag and put directly for wash or may leave it aside for about 3 days to be safe from virus.

  • Please do not encourage the buyer into your house, however hospitable you are. We are now living in the times of Pandemic! Please remember at all times.

  • If you are offering water to drink, please handle the glass very carefully, as if virus germs are deposited on it. Please avoid offering for the safety of all!

  • If the book is being picked up by delivery service providers( like Dunzo) please make sure same instructions are followed, the payment is made to you digitally.


If you are a buyer

  • Please inform the seller, before going to their place to pick up the book.

  • If you are engaging an app based service provider (like Dunzo), please ask him/her to call the seller as they get closer to the place of pickup.

  • Please wear a mask or instruct anyone picking up to wear a mask.

  • Please carry a hand sanitizer,  and your own bag 

  • When you reach the place, please remember to sanitize your hands.

  • Please sanitize your hand,  pick up the book(s) and leave them in another bag that you are carrying with you.
