The CDC recommends children over two years old wear face masks for protection. Well, that might be easier said than done. Here some some ideas for facing the challenge…
And maybe share it with anyone you know who’s an idiot:

Wear them. If you don’t have any, make them:
If you’re trapped at home, odds are you’re doing some cooking. This is my favorite Polish dish (although I can’t have cabbage now because of the statins I take). It is a wonderful hearty dish, so give it a shot:
It will be inevitable that you’ll have to go to the grocery store. I am sure you’ve experienced the same issues as me. There are no frozen vegetables, no potatoes, no paper goods. (Eeeeek!) It seems trips to the store will be the only occasion that I will leave the house.
Please be careful. Don’t hoard anything. Be kind and thoughtful
A very useful guide from the CDC:
“There is much to learn about the novel coronavirus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Based on what is currently known about the novel coronavirus and similar coronaviruses that cause SARS and MERS, spread from person-to-person with these viruses happens most frequently among close contacts (within about 6 feet). This type of transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. On the other hand, transmission of novel coronavirus to persons from surfaces contaminated with the virus has not been documented. Transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through fomites. 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.”
