Things You Need to Do as Soon as You Get in the Car to Avoid COVID

The car may be the safest mode of transportation amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there are still things you need to do to stay in your car.

A biology professor at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth told Good Morning America this week that getting into a car is one of the riskiest things to do during the pandemic.

According to the CDC, the two things to do when you get in the car:

1. Turn off the recirculation button.

2. Lower your car windows for optimal ventilation.

In addition, the CDC recommends wearing a mask, practicing hand hygiene after the ride as well as avoiding touching surfaces.
