While it's common sense to make sure you're washing your hands before you touch your face, after you sneeze, etc, that's certainly not enough to ensure germs aren't spreading around your home or office simply because you can't control other people's habits or behaviors.

So, yes, obviously, wash your hands, but also make sure you're thoroughly cleaning common surfaces where germs normally lurk.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency recently released their list of the 14 best cleaning products to combat the spread of germs. In a statement released on their website, the EPA said that the virus can live on various surfaces for days.

"Current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings."
