I like this site. It has a lot of good detail.
I am wondering about adding some detail to the section listed below.
Under the section titled "How can I reduce my risk..." Can you address situations such as being coughed in the face by someone sick, ie should you wash your face, or..? Also, would wearing latex gloves and or face masks in public during an outbreak be recommended, ie to the grocery store, etc. if it is still open?
