Pro Tip

UV radiation can help kill viruses like COVID-19. A specific wavelength of ultraviolet radiation killed more than 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 according to a study completed at Ohio State University. UV222 killed 99.99% of COVID-19 during the tests.


I am on a budget. What PPE gear and supplies should I get?

When dealing with any situation where there is a contagious illness you should at least have a cloth or disposable N-95 mask, gloves, protective eyewear, and something to sanitize your hands and any surfaces that you commonly come into contact with.
Remember that anything is better than nothing. Plastic gloves designed for food service work are better than nothing at all even if they are not as good as nitrile or latex.

How long does a typical quarantine last? How do I know when it is safe to interact with others?

The length of quarantine varies depending on how sick someone gets or how long it takes to determine they are not infected. With COVID-19, a 14-day quarantine was used to ensure someone did not have it. That time increased considerably if they got sick. With unknown illnesses it is very hard to know how long someone is contagious for. When in doubt, someone should stay quarantined for 3 days after all symptoms have gone away.
