Anyone who shares a household with a person sick with signs of flu or COVID-19 or has come in contact with anyone who might be infected with Coronavirus or even if anyone has travelled or shared the same space as a COVID-19 case might be at high risk. 

Here are some tips to quarantine yourself at home. 

1. It's very important to separate yourself from your family members as well as your pets. Stay away from your family and stay in a separate room and a separate bathroom and toilet. 

2. Wear a face mask when you step out to see a doctor or travel or go to any place where you may share space with any other person. Always wear a mask even when you're around your family and friends to prevent them from being at risk. 

3. Be careful with your hygiene. Cover your mouth and nose while sneezing. Use a tissue to wipe your mouth and nose and throw away the tissue immediately after using it. Remember to use a garbage bag to line your bin where you dispose of the used tissues. Wash your hands every now and then with handwash for at least 30 seconds. Always carry a hand sanitizer. 

4. Keep your utensils separate and do not mix them with anyone else's. Don't wash the utensils together or with the same soap. Clean them yourself after using and disinfect them. 

5. Keep your towel, bedding and clothes separately. Do not mix them with the rest of the family when washing and disinfect them while washing. Remember to clean the bathroom as well after using with a good bathroom and toilet cleaner. 

6. Limit your movement within because when you move around the house you come in contact with the household items and put the rest of the family members at high risk of getting infected.
