    No - you don't need to disinfect door handles and light switches if you're the only person who uses them. Any germs that might be on them would be your OWN germs.

    To do that is the best option. You could have touched something harmful and then touched a door handle or light switch. Next time you touch either, you could be allowing that harmful thing another chance to make you ill. So basically, yes, you need to disinfect door handles and light switches

    In this day of Coronavirus, yes, you need to disinfect even if only you use handles.

    If you touch the door handles and lights after going out to shop then yes. You brought germs back on your hands.

    Right now if you go outside and come in you may leave Cornavisu on doorknobs and light switches. but the main thing is when you come in is to wash your hands. but you might want to disinfect the things you touch before you get to wash your hands. Like those doorknobs and light switches.

    Yes because one person still have germs. Just because at one point they were on you doesn’t mean u can’t touch them again and get sick from it. Especially disinfect bathroom and front door handles/lightswitches
