COVID-19: Protecting Yourself as Places Reopen

May 19, 2020 | COVID-19 Pandemic

Protect yourself against COVID-19. CNN’s John Berman reports the five main sources of coronavirus infection include homes, workplaces, public transportation, social gatherings, and restaurants. These environments alone account for 90 percent of all transmission and have one thing in common: they are predominantly indoors. As states begin to reopen, how do we continue to avoid dangerous places in order to protect ourselves from contamination?

According to University of Massachusetts Biology Professor Erin Bromage, loud environments indicate the location you are in is unsafe. “Normal talking releases a certain amount of respiratory droplets, and the louder you talk, the more you release,” Bromage explains. “These enclosed spaces with lots of people and poor air circulation leads to the fairly rapid spread of the virus among susceptible people. If you end up indoors, which you are going to, in an environment where there seems like a lot of people and it just doesn’t feel right, these are the situations we need to avoid,” he adds.
