High Risk - How to minimize your exposure to the Coronavirus
There are some simple steps you can perform to help minimize exposure to the Coronavirus.
Your most significant exposure potential comes from people and the surfaces around people.
The easiest way to impact and lessen your exposure is to stay at home. Do not go out in public. Do not go into public areas where the public has recently been.
No exposure means no exposure to anyone, including family and friends. This suggestion sounds harsh and draconian, but it is the only way to minimize your potential of exposure to the Coronavirus.
Coronavirus can linger on surfaces—hours on hard surfaces and days on porous surfaces like linens and cardboard.
Have everything you need delivered to the area in front of your door. Do not greet the person wait for them to leave. Do not sign for, pay for, or take change from the delivery person.
Dry, warmth, and sunlight help kill off the Coronavirus on surfaces.
Preferably using gloves take the deliveries and place them into the warmest, sunniest, and driest location in your home.
Carefully dispose of the gloves, wash your hands thoroughly. Only handle or open the packages in ten days.
You can't have anything perishable within ten days delivered.
Nothing can guarantee no exposure to the Coronavirus. Still, if you follow these simple steps, you will be helping to minimize your potential exposure.
