You can’t prevent some dust from getting in your house whenever you open a door

Now that I’m working from home and getting all of my grocery orders delivered, I am getting too comfortable with being homebound.

I make excuses to avoid going out, even if it’s to run a check to the bank or to hit a store that doesn’t offer home delivery services.

I’ll admit, it’s nice to know I’m not getting very much exposure to COVID-19 as well. This at least held true during the worst parts of the pandemic when I was worried that my exposure was potentially life threatening. It’s a major relief that current variants of the virus have been a lot less tenacious and deadly than the initial ones. That’s the only positive that I remind myself of when I look at the infection rates and see positive increases across the board, with many states seeing increases again for the fifth, sixth, and seventh times. Some people have managed to get COVID inside big and open living spaces because of shared central HVAC systems where the viral particles simply recirculate while the a/c or heating system is running. I use special allergen filters that have a small enough micro size to collect viral particles like the COVID-19 virus. Aside from containing any COVID-infected respiratory particles, I’m also extremely careful when opening any external doors or windows. That’s how you can quickly get out of control of dust all over your indoor surfaces. It’s impossible to avoid it to some degree without owning a separate decontamination room in between my front door and the inside of my house
