Don`t try to force your roommate by changing locks or turning off utilities. You can ask your landlord if you can break your lease to allow you to move to a place where you feel safe. Keep in mind to start with behavioral agreements before problems arise. When a conflict arises, the first step remains a conversation. Calm down and stay calm. It is important that you talk with your roommates about COVID-19 and related topics such as quarantine, social distancing, collecting expectations, etc. The pandemic could be with us for the duration of a one-year lease, so it`s important to talk about it with your family and potential roommates and make a deal before you sign a lease or as soon as you`ll be able to do so. Write down your plan and post it where everyone can see it.
