your home faster.
Bring as much fresh air into your home as possible.
Filter the air in your home.
Turn on the exhaust fan in your bathroom and kitchen.
Use fans to improve airflow.
Limit the number of visitors inside your home.

or increased risk of death. CDC, in collaboration
with other public health agencies, is monitoring the situation closely.
