Please see this article from my friend, Dr. Howard Luks:

"Mitigation measures for immediate implementation:

  • Support your schools’ decisions to close: Proactive school closings save more lives than reactive school closings. Your schools should close now… before infections are present. Closed schools do not mean playdates for children — this counteracts the social distancing the school closures are meant to create in the first place.

  • 6 feet: The COVID-19 virus spreads through droplets. They can move 6 feet before gravity brings them to earth. Stay 6 feet away from people if you need to go outside.

  • Meticulous hand washing: Wash thoroughly and wash often. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer works well if your hands are otherwise clean.

  • Do not touch your face. This is hard. This is a learned skill… practice often.

  • Clean doorknobs, toilets, cellphones, countertops, refrigerator handles and so on many times each day. The virus could live on certain surfaces for 4–72 hours.

  • If you can work from home, work from home.

  • No tournaments, no sports events, no soccer, baseball, dance, volleyball, softball, gymnastics, concerts, martial arts, etc. We don’t care how much they claim they will clean the equipment.

  • Cancel vacation travel. We know you planned this for a long time. You will be saving many lives by doing so… perhaps someone you know.

  • Cancel weddings/ Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, birthday parties and so on. Help other people live so they can celebrate future events too.

  • If you are over 60 years old you should stay home. You should only go out if there is a critical need.

  • If you have parents/grandparents in a nursing home you should consider moving them home for now.

  • Do not congregate in a restaurant, bar, etc. Again, you will save the lives of people you will never meet.

  • If you feel sick stay home. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel too sick. Going to work will put countless other people at risk of suffering or dying.

  • Cancel all business travel. Your life and the lives of others are more important.

  • Expect supply chain issues: Work with your doctor to try to get a 3 month supply of medication.

  • Many grocery stores have order ahead options with either pick up or delivery. There are online grocery delivery services available in many areas. Wash your hands thoroughly after unpacking groceries."
