    We have a person self-isolating in our AirBnB. I was thinking we should probably leave it about 4 days after they have departed before we clean to avoid risking virus exposure. What do you think?

    How long does COVID-19 last on surfaces?
    According to the World Health Organization, it is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).

    If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with a common household disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.

    Probably a good idea but in theory the guest will know by day 14... but probably good to block out the 4 days in case
