    According to a news report the Central Bank is requiring those regulated by them, banks and pawnshops to sanitize money and to keep sanitized and unsanitzed money separate. The money you have today is unsanitized. Gloves are the only protection protecting you from Covid 19 from things you touch.

    Wear them when you go out and replace them often.

    This is really still part of the 'anything you touch outside your home (or possibly inside your home if someone is a carrier)' is a bio-hazard.

    People need to avoid thinking about specific items as they tend then to ignore the greater picture.

    And even if you obtain sanitised money from a bank, the first time you use it you will receive non-sanitised money in return as change.

    I think using gloves is also a distraction and can make people feel more secure than they are - as soon as you touch anything, they are potentially contaminated and so need to be washed. Best not to think about them and just keep sanitising your hands.

    Covered face (mask and eye cover) + hand sanitising is the surest route for us to help prevent getting infected if we go outside our homes. Staying in is even better (or maybe equal).

    None of these measures is perfect, but they are better than nothing. It merely changes the percentages. Society is generally playing a huge, complicated game of "Whack-a-Mole" that will continue for 18 months.
