When can you be around others? CDC updates coronavirus guidance | Health/Fitness

“People with conditions that weaken their immune system might need to stay home longer than 10 days,” the CDC said.

And people who are exposed to someone with coronavirus need to stay at home for at least 14 days, the CDC said, since it can take that long for symptoms to develop.

The CDC’s updated practical advice for using public transportation, ride shares and other transportation was consistent with other advice on preventing infection: wash your hands and be careful what you touch.

But the CDC also advises opening windows when possible to improve air circulation, especially in cars.

Wash again and again

“Limit touching frequently touched surfaces such as kiosks, digital interfaces such as touchscreens and fingerprint scanners, ticket machines, turnstiles, handrails, restroom surfaces, elevator buttons, and benches as much as possible,” the CDC advises.

“If you must touch these surfaces, as soon as you can, wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or rub your hands with sanitizer containing 60% alcohol,” it adds.

“Use touchless payment and no-touch trash cans and doors when available. Exchange cash or credit cards by placing them in a receipt tray or on the counter rather than by hand, if possible.”
