Is it safe to continue using my nebulizer at home for inhaled medications?

According to the American Lung Association, it is safe to use your nebulizer.

However, if you have suspected or are diagnosed with COVID-19, use your nebulizer in a more secluded area of your home, such as outside on a porch or patio or in a garage, because “the virus may persist in droplets in the air for 1-2 hours”. Choose an area where air is not recirculated into your home and dependent surfaces can be easier to clean or may not need cleaning.
