How to stay safe (Consumer Reports) |

For those who continue to have to commute each day, or who are resuming their commute because work-from-home restrictions have been lifted: Sit or stand as far from others on the bus as you can. If you see someone cough or sneeze near you on the bus or train, and you’re more than 6 feet away from them, your risk is probably low, says David Freedman, M.D., a professor of infectious diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
