A crucially important public health intervention that can help stop corona virus transmission by avoiding crowds and large gatherings such as weddings, concerts, conferences, sporting events, and mass transit. Best practice requires maintaining at least a six-foot distance between yourself and others.
Early information out of China indicates that one of the ways that corona-virus spreads is through the household. Now, it’s obviously impossible to be entirely distant from your family, despite the hopeful dreams of many Millennial, but there are things you can do to help prevent the virus from spreading among your friends, family, and weird roommates.
If you do get sick, isolate yourself from the family. Take precautions when caring for sick loved ones. Wipe down shared surfaces more often. Try not to let your kids stick their hands directly into your mouth quite so often.
Wash your hands, don’t touch your face, sneeze and cough responsibly
I know, I know, I already said this. But it is worth saying again. Washing your hands, not touching your face, and avoiding coughing on everyone else are some of the main ways that you can help to lower your risk of infection and protect everyone else as well.
