9. It's essentially been disproven.

Okay, if someone with an active case sneezes or spits on a surface, and you touch it very soon after, then touch your face, you might possibly be infected.

But if it were possible to get it just from surfaces very easily, and awful lot more people would have gotten it by now. You don't even need to leave things alone for three days.

It's the airborne thing almost exclusively. If everyone is wearing their masks properly (a huge if in too many cases) and maintaining social distance, not spending much time inside where air circulation and ventilation might not be very good, then you should have no worries.

I know a lot of people will say they're not going to take any chances and wipe down or isolate everything. I've already read stuff about the disinfectant chemicals getting into everything because of the over use of them.
