1. Take extra precautions when you return home
Any member of the family who must leave the house for work or groceries need to take extra precautions when returning home, according to Sandra Crawley, RN, medical consultant with Mom Loves Best. They can’t just walk back into the house like normal.
“Take a change of shoes and leave the ‘clean’ shoes in the car,” Crawley says. “They should change out of their work attire and take a shower as soon as they get home. Be sure not to shake out clothing as the virus can become airborne. All clothing should be washed in the warmest setting possible and thoroughly dried.”
