Although the COVID-19 coronavirus is thought to spread primarily from person to person, it may spread in other ways, such as by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it before touching your own mouth, nose or eyes.
As such, the CDC recommends that you clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Think tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, door handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
“We all need to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19,” Dr. Harmon says. “Taking proper precautions isn’t always easy, but it’s extremely important.”
