Coronavirus question?

I had testicular cancer, plus had my lymph nodes removed: should I sequester myself in the home, or is it safe to be outside with other people?

Stay home. When you go out, use a face mask and stay 6 feet away from other people.
It is best for you to stay at home and only go out when necessary at this time.

The best practice is to practice social distancing and stay at home. Especially those who fall into high risk categories including patients 60 years and older, patients that are immunocompromised or those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or hypertension.
