Gloves would only help keep the person wearing them from touching it with their fingers, if they rub their eye or mouth or nose with the glove on they could still contract the virus if it was on the glove.
And you can still pick the virus up on the gloves while handing one thing that is contaminated and transfer it to other objects you touch with the same gloves.
One amazon worker could theoretically infect a very large amount of packages in a very short time......same goes for the post man, UPS and Fedex.
Sounds insane but you have to use sterile technique just like in a operating room to be near 100% sure you are not spreading it from one surface to another.
I realize everyone is not going to go through the hassle and extreme measure we are, I am just trying to share our situation and maybe help others understand what they can be doing better along the way should they choose to do so.
Not everyone in my family is in a bubble either.
My oldest son (that does not live with us) is still going to work everyday and to the store and doing what he has to in order to get by.......but I remind him to be as careful as he can everyday also.
We talk on the phone and message and he swings by all the time to check on things for me without coming up to the house......but that is just the way its got to be for a while unfortunately.
My parents are in their 70's and are not isolated at my house. I try to stay on them and tell them to stay put at their place and not socialize.....but they are grown adults and have to make their own decisions.
Hell when I get off this ship I will be right smack dab in the middle of Seattle (where it all started) and have to make my way to the airport and fly home.
Once I get home I will have to quarantine away from everyone for 2 weeks to make sure I did not pick it up on my travels home.
I will basically be camping in order to steer clear of my family and anyplace they may go or anything they may touch.
That is if domestic flights are still even flying then so I can get home......we shall see.
