#10 – If You Are Sick, Stay Home
If you are already showing symptoms of any illness, you need to stay home in order to stop the spread of a virus. This means if you live alone but you need groceries, take advantage of having the groceries delivered online. And if you need to run out to the pharmacy, some do deliver or hire someone to deliver it to you. This also means if you have a sick family member, make sure they stay at home. If you are healthy, you will need to run the errands for them.
