Is it possible to be infected with coronavirus even in your home?

Location has NO bearing on whether one can be infected with anything.
The key point about all of us staying home is that we are not meeting up and passing such viruses around. So, if you don't have it in your home, and you make sure that no one else comes in during this time of physical distancing, then that will make it almost certain that the virus will not enter your home and infect anyone staying inside of it.

Yes. You can bring it in unknowingly on things you buy at the store. This is why you constantly need to wash your hands and keep them away from your eyes, nose and mouth. And this is why you wipe down the things you touch often - doorknobs, handles to appliances, the TV remote, phones, computer keyboard and mouse...

If you dont go outside, it is unlikely that you will get infected, as it spreads through bodily fluids. Just make sure to wash your hands after going outside and as extra measures you can use wipes to disinfect things such as doorknobs and phone touchscreens

anything is possible. Food delivered may have been handled by someone infected. It's best to take food out of containers and toss the containers away then was your hands thoroughly.

If the virus has been introduced into your home, you can become infected. Humans are the most likely source of infection. If you or anyone in your home has been in physical contact with people outside your home recently, they could be infected.
It can take up to 14 days for symptoms to appear and people are infectious during this time.
