If the global outbreak of novel coronavirus COVID-19 is turning you into a germophobe, you already know how to cough into your inner elbow, thoroughly wash your hands and what kind of face masks will and won't protect you best. But if you're going to continue to go to work, dine out, shop in stores and ride public transportation, you need practical tips to feel comfortable and keep yourself -- and others -- safe.
I'm not an infectious disease expert, but I did want to share some practices I adopted during my recent trip to Portugal and England, at a time when confirmed COVID-19 cases began spiking in Italy, Germany, France, and Spain. I've continued to follow them since returning to the Bay Area as well.
The day before my flight back, two baggage handlers at London's Heathrow airport where I flew from tested positive for the virus. But ironically, it's my home in Santa Clara County that might put me at greater risk to exposure -- there are currently 37 known cases and 1 death at a hospital just five miles away. For the time being, I intend to stay part of the world. Carefully.
