The coronavirus, according to experts, is usually transmitted by droplets from a sneeze or cough, that can survive on articles of clothing, bed linens, towels and other household items. Conventional home or commercial laundering in hot water (above 80° F) and extra time and heat in the dryer will help kill the virus. If you’ve been in a public area, remove your clothing and launder, including your coat if you’ve sneezed into your elbow or touched surfaces with your sleeves. It’s best practice to put on “inside” shoes and clothing after you’ve been out. Don’t Panic; Stay Home; and Wash Your Hands.
