While the virus does not travel, it is the people they stuck on that allows for them to spread out. Researchers have discovered that this type of coronavirus can survive in many surfaces longer, from a few hours up to several days. Many people who might be infected by the virus may not display any symptoms for a few days. People may be unaware that they have the virus and continue to pass it on to more and more people. That is why social distancing and home quarantineare the most effective ways of trying to slow down the spread of the virus.

Learn About School And Work Policies

Since home quarantine may cause some school and work closures. You might need to learn more about the policies in place in your community in case a prolonged quarantine may be enforced. Employees would also need to check up on their employers regarding work options and policies in case they do contract the virus in order to prepare.

Check Out Updates In Your Area

Keep updated on news about the virus affecting your immediate area. If in case the virus infections are known within your area, check up with your local health authorities to learn about what to do. Bear in mind that it is a developing situation where new information may be available from day to day. Keep informed so that you may be able to prepare yourself from any eventuality.
