Stressed about going to work

Because of the nature of my job I am not able to work from home. I live with my husband and 2 kids, as well as my 90 year old mother and I am worried about spreading any germs to them. Does anyone have advice on how to keep safe while still going to work? This has been so stressful and makes it hard to even concentrate on my job.
