4 tips to avoid infecting housemates

We are sorry that you have coronavirus. To avoid infecting housemates, you have to isolate and keep your distance. However, there is more you can do to prevent infecting other people in your home:

Stay in your own room as much as possible 

Make sure to sleep alone in your room

Use your own tableware

Divide the tableware between you and your housemates. Think about separate cutlery, plates, cups, and glasses.

Use your own towels

Keep your towels and wash cloths separate from those of your housemates.

If possible, use another toilet

If you have multiple bathrooms and toilets in your home, it is smart to use another bathroom or toilet than your housemate. Are you sharing one toilet or bathroom with housemates? Please clean it every day. Making sure there is enough fresh air is also wise. For example, you could open the window for 15 minutes, 3 times per day.
