You need to stay safe right now. Not just for your sake and your family’s sake, but for the sake of everyone out there, especially people who might be the most vulnerable.
So here are some tips from the CDC on how to keep your home, work, and business, and schools safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Everyone should wash their hands when they get home and regularly . . . avoid touching their faces . . . and cover coughs and sneezes. Disinfect surfaces like tables and doorknobs regularly. And increase ventilation by opening windows.
If you have vulnerable people in the home, like senior citizens or people with compromised immune systems, have everyone keep as much distance as possible, wash their hands frequently, and try to have just one family member take care of them.
