Dr. Anthony Fauci has declared the handshake dead. All that close physical contact is just not what you want when there's a respiratory-borne pandemic going around.

Namaste, a traditional Hindu greeting, means, "The Divine within me bows to the same Divine within you" in Sanskrit, according to the Hindu American Foundation. Clearly, the gesture is a poetic step up from clammy handshakes.
To do it, bow slightly, palms pressed together toward your chest, with your fingertips pointing up.
Raise brows and smile
Don't say "hello" with your hands -- say it with your brows.
