Doctors recommend not touching anyone, but if you have to, wash your hands with soap and water - or use sanitizer - and don’t touch your face. Transmission through the air or from surfaces is possible but unlikely. Stay at least six feet away from other people, and wash and sanitize your hands after touching any surfaces before you touch your face.
