Using the basement as shelter-in place?

Answer

If your basement offers the easiest location to tape and seal all windows and doors, then it may be the best location for your family even though it is below ground. Since each opening will require time to seal it off, minimizing the number that you will need to seal will shorten the time it takes to reduce airflow into the room. The room should be easy to get to and provide adequate space for family members.
