While ANP has recommended readers protect themselves as we watch the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the globe, we note that typical everyday Americans that appear to only get their news from the establishment media and believe what they are being told by them, are acting clueless, almost comatose and zombified as if there is no danger whatsoever to them, their families or their communities.
We have provided readers’ recommendations, links for protection items, emergency survival food, suggested indoor year round gardening along with books to learn how to grow food inside in case we have to hunker down long enough to use up all the emergency survival freeze dried foods.
One aspect of protections for ourselves and our families that we have not addressed is family that lives outside of our homes, especially those living in big cities, and how to help them if reports of COVID-19 coronavirus has spread to a city near them or worse, in their city.
While some would says each is on their own, others would be hard-pressed to deny safe haven to family or close friends that need a place to run to, but to offer help, while minimizing the risk to our own lives, there are home preparations and modifications that would have to be made before allowing anyone that has even potentially been exposed to enter our homes.
On Monday, Steve Quayle linked to an outstanding piece over at Survival Dan 101, dealing with setting up a home quarantine room, and some of those suggestions are incorporated below, along with some additional ideas.

• Pick A Home To Set Up A Quarantine Room: If members of your family live in close proximity to each other , there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to set up multiple quarantine rooms in different homes.
Discuss it. Choose one home, preferably a house versus Aunt Betty’s apartment where neighbors live on top of each other and it is harder to isolate anyone that has been possibly exposed to COVID-19 or any other virus.
This is smart for a number of reasons.
First: You are not chancing multiple homes having the virus inside, so it will be easier to keep contained.
Second: There is a much higher chance that there is another entrance/exit close to the quarantine room.
Third: Setting the quarantine room up becomes much less expensive because all working age family members can chip in for the items needed to set up the room. With only one room being utilized, no need to purchase the set up items for more than one location.
Fourth: A house has a better chance of having a garage, which if prepared properly, would be a great quarantine room and keep those possibly infected out of the house altogether.
For the purpose of this article, we would rather err on the side of caution, so we are assuming no garage quarantine room, for whatever reason.
Some ideas via the Survival Dan piece along with some of our own suggestions mixed in.
• Drop cloths, duct tape: No matter where you set up your quarantine, you’ll want to get plastic drop cloths to help you limit the contagion. You’ll need enough drop cloth to cover the access to the room in curtain layers. Hang two layers at the entrance. One to enter the room, and then hang another curtain barrier with three feet of space between trap contagion. You may also like to cover the windows to keep the contagion from spreading or use a containment zipper at the entrance of your quarantine room. You’ll need basic supplies to set up your room within a quarantine room using drop cloths and securing them in place with duct tape. Remember duct tape has infinite survival uses!
