Abstract

Owners and renters all over the world are being encouraged to stay home as much as possible to mitigate the spread of the SARS CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease. It is prudent to take reasonable precautions at home to reduce risks during the pandemic because most COVID-19 transmission happens in the home (see “learn more”). This is particularly true for households with infected or sensitive members.  Furthermore, because people infected with COVID-19 can be asymptomatic you may have an infected person in your home for several days before you know it.
