Coronavirus can stay in the air for up to 2 hours indoors after being breathed out. This means that the virus may stay in the air in your home even after an infected person has left the room.
If you want to keep infection levels as low as possible...
It helps to spend time in your own space so that you are less likely to pick up the virus from other people. This could be a room that other people do not come into.
Can you arrange for one room in your home to be just for you - and try to spend more time there? This could include eating or sleeping.
Opening windows often is an easy way to stop the virus collecting in the air. If it is cold outside, you could open a window in one room if you’re planning to spend time there with someone else you live with, or a visitor. Shutting the door to the rest of your home will reduce the amount of heat lost.
You could choose a room that is easier to heat up after or that you don’t spend much time in, such as the kitchen.
Keep 6 feet/2 metres away from other members of your household as much as possible. The more distance you can keep between you, the fewer viruses will be shared between you.
Can you organise your room so that you have more space between seats? Is it possible to arrange using shared areas of your home at different times, so that only one person is there at a time?
