16. Just watch what goes near your face.

Sounds like the virus *has* to be inhaled to activate. Touching the virus won't let it in, but just avoid handling surfaces or used masks in a way that could dislodge particles into the air where it could be inhaled. Don't rub a bag from the grocery store or new mail on your face!

Keeping everything wiped is still a good idea, but there is low possibility of "re-aerosolization" back into the air so long as people are careful. Which is good!

That's why I shook my head at that Idaho "mask burn" party where people were standing directly over a fire barrel and dropping masks in. That sounds unsafe.
