12. Touching Surfaces in Public

Touching Surfaces

How long coronavirus droplets are still alive and viable on public surfaces is up for debate, but many experts say it’s at least a couple of days. All the more reason to avoid touching public surfaces as much as possible. Frequently used public surfaces include door handles, shopping carts, street crossing buttons, and more. If you do need to touch public surfaces to take care of important errands like grocery shopping, be sure to wipe them down with disinfecting wipes before and after use.
