    A friend is coming to my home today to help me declutter. To prevent transfer, we are:

    • having her come in old clothes she will dispose of after
    • carrying items in a plastic bag.
    • ziplocking bag before entry.
    • having her shower and change directly before she leaves.
    • she will dispose of clothes double bagged into garbage can.
    • unziplock her bag only once she has exited.

    Is this enough to protect her?

    Also the smell sign? My apartment has always smelt a little off which I think is related to the water damage. I now this the smell is sweet with all of this reading up. Is the smell of the premises meaningful?

    She will open the ziplock twice: once to get a towel and once to get clothes change. Should I have her strip in he infected room and then go directly to the bathroom. I have not been as careful that way myself. Never occurred to me they'd travel on my night clothes.
