    3. Wear disposable gloves and change them frequently if there is a need to frequently touch common surfaces.
    4. Avoid coming within three feet of others. Six feet is better even if impractical.
    5. Use disinfectant wipes often on any frequently touched surfaces.
    6. Those over 65 years old should stay at home if there is an epidemic.

At present, masks are helpful only (1 When used by infected people to avoid spreading contagion, and (2) When used by physicians, nurses, and others having very high exposure to potentially infected people.

    While it may not be possible to observe all these precautions all of the time, following them as much as possible, as often as possible, will increase safety from corona virus.
