You can’t. Any activity in the CH is going to result in people being closer 
than 6 ft. It would be difficult to have even 2 people in the kitchen.

Our Covid 19 Team closed down the CH except for picking up mail and 1 person at 
a time in the laundry room. One person studying for exams is using a room 
exclusively by himself to study. A family with no air conditioning (it is 
suddenly 92 degrees here) is using a guest room.

All the surfaces that hands might touch are being wiped down with bleach once a 
day. For a few weeks it was twice a day. No guests. Delivery people discouraged.

So far so good. No cases.
