+ Washing up before and after sex is more important than ever.
+ Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
+ Wash sex toys with soap and warm water.
+ Disinfect keyboards and touch screens that you share with others (for video chat, for watching pornography or for anything else).
