Steps can be taken to mitigate the threat of spreading the coronavirus to folks who are sheltering at home. For example, in many cases delivery drivers don’t seem to have any protection, and if it’s necessary to sign for something, customers are expected to touch a stylus or a screen that has been used by others. Drivers should be practicing social distancing, setting down packages at least six feet away instead of handing them to customers. Despite precautions, it’s likely that someone in any given “isolated” home has or will get the virus.
