8. Be extra cautious with the products you bring inside
You need to take into consideration that all the items you bring inside your house could carry the virus, according to Leann Poston, MD, a contributor with Invigor Medical.
As long as there are no perishables, Poston suggests that groceries should be left outside the home for at least three days in order to prevent virus transfer into the home. If that’s not possible, however, she recommends double bagging groceries so that the “contaminated outer bag” can be carefully removed and disposed.
