First off, minimise the use of shared spaces, so, for instance, don't be in the kitchen at the same time and be sure to clean all surfaces that are touched often throughout the house, such as taps, light switches, doorknobs, remotes, sinks, and so on. Don't forget to wash your hands after using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Allocate an area in each of the shared spaces that the patient should try to stick to, like a specific area in the kitchen and a designated area in the bathroom where all their items may be placed. Preferably, prep meals for the patient so they don't have to cook as they may infect the whole kitchen while trying to do so.

Make sure you don't share food, utensils, toothbrushes, or anything that might be put you at risk.

If you share a bathroom, be sure to sterilise anything the patient may have touched or encounter before using it, including taps, sinks and the shower. Also, no sharing of toothbrushes, instead keep the patient's items in one designated area in the bathroom, so no mishaps occur and have a separate washing bag for their clothes.

No to sharing, yes to more cleaning. Sterilise everything that was within arm's reach of the patient. This applies to everything, such as home devices, remotes, light switches, doorknobs, keyboards, car handles and so on. And then once again, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
