If your state or local government has issued a “stay at home”, “shelter in place”, or other similar order; yes, stay home except for essential needs. CDC has also issued a Domestic Travel Advisory for New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
If your state/community hasn’t issued an executive order or guidance, consider if COVID-19 has been spreading in your community, where you will be going, and who you will be with – remember that someone may have the disease and can spread it without knowing it. That includes you to those you live with and love and are in close contact on a daily basis.
If you must go out, try to limit it for essential needs such as groceries, medications from the pharmacy, and essential medical appointments. While you are out, practice the “social distancing” method of maintaining at least 6 feet between you and other people.
Having TM in and of itself doesn’t automatically make you more susceptible. You must consider the other risk factors that may be a result (secondary conditions) of your having TM (i.e. recent diagnosis & have received immunosuppressant therapies or are on steroids, a level of injury that complicates respiration, requires a use of ventilation or other breathing assistance, etc.) as well as the risk factors associated with COVID-19; are you a person 65 or older? Do you have any other underlying health concerns such as asthma, heart conditions, severe obesity, diabetes, etc.?
Babies are not one of the higher risk categories for COVID-19 however, they may still contract, carry, and spread the virus. They may or may not show symptoms of the disease. If you are not the primary caregiver, and as you would aside from a pandemic and handling babies, wash your hands frequently, avoid touching their face or getting your face too close to theirs, and if you or they are sick, keep your distance.
