First, it's nerve-wracking to live in such unknown situations so I would suggest calling your doctors and confirming the best approach for both of you. My husband and I are in our 60's/70's and in relatively good health but still I worry about 'what if' because of our ages. In the meantime, I wipe down doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, faucets, just about everything we put our hands on in the house with disinfectant wipes. If I go out to the supermarket, I carry a couple of the wipes with me in one hand and use them to open the refrigerated doors and to wipe down the self-checkout screens and buttons. I just stay very conscious of my hands and then wash them really well when I get home.
I guess using good sense is the way to go but if anyone has a specific health issue, I'd call the doctor to get reassurance. Our dentist's office sent us an email that explains how they are sanitizing the waiting room and asking patients to call and cancel their app'ts if they are sick. (duh, you know?)
Stay well and good luck!
