Dining typically involves opening your mouth, unless you need to eat from a straw, which is an added problem beyond COVID-19. It’s hard to wear a mask and social distance for those who live in nursing homes. Laughing, sneezing, or even breathing can spread COVID-19 to fellow nursing home residents at a table or adjacent tables. This is particularly the case with people that are asymptomatic. This makes “dining” an activity that warrants ACUTE disinfection.
