With the number of coronavirus cases escalating in the country, many people are worried about protecting themselves and their families.

Short of total isolation, health experts say good hygiene remains the most effective way to mitigate the spread of illness.

This also includes regularly washing hands and disinfecting common areas in your home and work. You will want to also avoid touching your face.

Dirty clothes and linens should be cleaned using the hottest water possible.

When it comes to your phones and other gadgets, use alcohol wipes to clean phones, tablets, and remote controls.
