That means:
  • Self-Isolation -- stay at home as much as you possibly can, and definitely stay home if you feel unwell in any way.  Don't gather with friends or relatives you do not live with.  When you do need to go out, for groceries, prescriptions or medical appointments, practice physical distancing.
