10. Don’t let your friends inside your home
Your best friend could have the coronavirus without even knowing. Poston says you should limit the house to the smallest social group possible, which will most likely be the “nuclear family unit,” with parents and children. Anyone who is not staying in the house long-term during this time should not be invited in.
“It will be difficult, but to protect your home and family from infection, limit access to the home to only this social group,” she says. “Talk with other family members and friends regularly online or by phone. If a family member or friend comes over, visit with them in the yard or on the porch while maintaining a distance of six feet or more.”
