hi Barbara, Please check with CRN, the Cohousing Researchers Network, At Cambridge Cohousing we don't use our commonshouse during covd-19, but in normal times we us it everyday. We have meals in the dining room that we prepare in the kitchen about twice a week. The kids use the kids room and the rec room every day (but you will be a senior coho sso you won't have kids or a kids room); The living room is not used on a daily basis, but the laundry room is. So how often a room is used depends on the purpose of the room.
