The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them

quote [ The exposure to virus x time formula is the basis of contact tracing. Anyone you spend greater than 10 minutes with in a face-to-face situation is potentially infected. Anyone who shares a space with you (say an office) for an extended period is potentially infected.
[…]
Symptomatic people are not the only way the virus is shed. We know that at least 44% of all infections--and the majority of community-acquired transmissions--occur from people without any symptoms (asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic people). ]

Fine illustration of how being outside, touching surfaces or shopping will not likely give you an infection, whereas spending a day at your workplace might.

Lots of examples and a fatalist approach suggesting we get used to evaluating these settings.
