The Self-Quarantine Manifesto

With no well-studied treatment and a viable vaccine still being out at least another year, the only effective way to keep the coronavirus epidemic at bay is to give the virus less chances of spreading. The following list of actions, ordered from easiest to implement to most effective in the fight against the pandemic, should serve as a set of loose guidelines for people who wish to join the movement and take action, where the people in charge continue to neglect.

1. Don’t panic, but be alert.

2. Wash your hands often and practice good cough and sneeze etiquette.

3. Try to touch your face as little as possible, including your mouth, nose, and eyes.

4. Practice social distancing, no hugs and kisses, no handshakes, no high fives. If you must, use safer alternatives.

5. Do not attend concerts, stage plays, sporting events, or any other mass entertainment events.

6. Refrain from visiting museums, exhibitions, movie theaters, night clubs, and other entertainment venues.

7. Stay away from social gatherings and events, like club meetings, religious services, and private parties.

8. Reduce your amount of travel to a minimum. Don’t travel long distances if not absolutely necessary.

9. Do not use public transportation if not absolutely necessary.

10. If you can work from home, work from home. Urge your employer to allow remote work if needed.

11. Replace as many social interactions as possible with remote alternatives like phone calls or video chat.

12. Do not leave your home if not absolutely necessary.
