4. Clean Your Phone
Your phone is probably the item you touch the most every day, and if you are stuck at home, you are likely using it more often than ever before. Clean your phone every time you come and go from your house. Do not let others use your phone.
To clean your phone, power down the device. Unplug all accessories and remove the phone from its case. Use disinfecting wipes that contain 70% isopropyl alcohol to clean both the phone and the case. Do not use paper towels or other abrasive materials that could damage your phone.
3. Wash Your Hands Throughout the Day
Masks, gloves and hand sanitizers all help prevent you from spreading the virus. But the best way to stop spreading the virus is by washing your hands with soap and water.
The CDC recommends washing your hands with warm soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Always wash your hands after you have been in public and after touching your face, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
2. Have Sick Household Members Wear a Mask
Anyone who has contracted COVID-19, or suspects they have contracted it, should be wearing a mask in your home, even if they are isolated in their own room.
“This will limit the virus spread by limiting the infected exhalations going into the air. These droplets of saliva with the virus can remain airborne and expose others who are breathing the same air. Masks prevent this aerosol spread of the virus as the infected person breathes.” says Kim Langdon, MD.
