2. Prepare a room for isolation
Nothing can fully protect you and your beloved ones from this virus, especially when you bring with you household items from outside to inside. That’s why it’s essential to be ready for the worst. Prepare a room for isolation if a family member contracts the coronavirus.
“In case you or a member of the family contracts the virus, there should be a physically limited space where the person will stay in,” says Nikola Djordjevic, MD, co-founder of HealthCareers.
“Since COVID-19 is highly contagious, an infected person shouldn’t move around the entire home and spread the virus everywhere. The room should be as empty as possible, so that the virus doesn’t stay on surfaces too long. Also, the room should have a window or a balcony, to ensure that fresh air can easily enter the room.”
