Old Brick Apartment Buildings in the East Village of Manhattan, New York City
As the pandemic continues, it’s important to continue to socially distance to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In places like New York City, where so many people live in close quarters, it’s not always easy to do.
Social distancing between people living together in a single apartment is next to impossible, so it’s important to put greater greatly emphasis on limiting your exposure to the outside world. CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez said that in cramped quarters, like so many who live in New York City, social distancing can be challenging, especially since the virus is airborne. Still, he said there are ways to limit your risks – like frequently washing your hands and not sharing utensils.
Apartment Guide’s Brian Carberry advises people to limit any time spent in laundry rooms or stairwells.
“If you do ride the elevator, try to bring a handkerchief, a napkin, and hand sanitizer with you. Press buttons with your elbows if you can,” Carberry said.
