Absolutely. But don't forget your eyes. They are another conduit that a virus can use to infect you. Whenever you are out in public areas, pretend that you just cleaned up the messiest snake cage you have ever seen in your life, and your hands are covered with fecal material. Everything you touch will be contaminated until you wash your hands.

Heck, I'm thinking back that I got a package delivered around 15 days ago that came directly from China. I guess I passed through the test period as to whether that package had something unwanted on it. I didn't know all about this stuff then. Now, well, I'm not ordering anything that even might be coming from China. Nope...

The carriers do not segregate packages, your neighbor's box of stuff from China will be sitting right on top of your box of stuff from Iowa in the delivery truck...

Yeah, you have a valid point there. I guess a lot depends on how long this virus can remain viable outside of a host. But still maybe I need to wear gloves opening up packages from anywhere for a while. If there is something I need to order in the near future that just can't wait.

Just yesterday I made a stop in at Harbor Freight and bought four more packs of their rubber gloves. I use them a lot around here anyway when I am working on the vehicles, doing painting, cleaning guns, etc. I believe I also have a box or two of face masks, and if I can find them some genuine Israeli gas masks with canister filters.

I wish the gloves were a more skin color rather than blue, because Connie and I just might start wearing them if we have to go out for something urgent.

We started stocking up on hurricane supplies early this year.

Wuhan Coronavirus Map

Sort of an interactive map that is supposed to be updated every few minutes to show state of actual and suspected infections.

My earlier (conspiracy theory) post suggesting this is man-made seems to be getting proven out. There are 'middle segment' aberrations in the genome structure that are not part of the natural evolution:
