Here's a good, short piece from a medical professional about the why and how of social distancing. "Going turtle" will save lives. If you can, do so. If you can't, read the article anyway; there are still things you can do.
At least one of the widely-memed sets of recommendations being shared on social media is sheer and utter nonsense. Not every "uncle with a Master's degree" is worth listening to. Snopes has a whole coronavius page, and no matter what you think about their politics, they're doing a good job sorting out fact from fancy on this subject. Don't buy into conspiracy theories, don't be sold a bill of goods. And wash your hands!
