I have experience in the biotech sector doing tissue culture and genetic analysis for many years. It is a bit unusual to see collected specimens left out, not put in a temperature controlled enviornment, and not labeled as a biohazard, with a sticker or red bag.

Things to think about:

Increase your healthspan via exercise, diet, etc. This is not often focused on as a recommendation because the results of wearing a mask and social distancing are more obvious and immediate. Everyone, unfortunately, will have some adverse health event. The healthier you are (i.e. better healthspan) when you encounter an adverse health event, the better your chances are of coming out of it and regaining your healthspan.
