If you touch your face, then you can transfer virus to mouth, nose, eyes, and contaminate yourself.
Which seems to be the main source of infection.
Nothing wrong with washing face, even having a shower if you have been out, and feel vulnerable.
It is airborne and not just with a sneeze. Mere breathing releases an invisible short distance spray. But that spray can hang in the air after a person passes by. That's the reason for the 6ft distance.

I dunno. BUT the experts keep saying over and over and over again that it is VERY contagious. Which was not so with the Ebola virus which was REALLY deadly. It killed one out of two people it infected. I don't think anyone can say with certainty whether this virus can "hang in the air" but there is some reason to stay away at least six feet from others. I also heard on local Fox News this evening that the experts are predicting that the peak in Florida will be May 3rd. And they are not sure whether it can reinfect so it is possible a new wave will come at flu season in the fall. It usually takes from 12-18 months to make a vaccine. I think it looks pretty grim and I think we need to take this bug seriously. Sorry no links, but you can check out this evenings local Fox News.
