Rav Yoni Rosensweig sent me these guidelines for Pesach this year:

(1) Every year we try and clean our homes to the best of our abilities.

(2) This year, it’s possible that, for a myriad of reasons, some of us will not be able to clean as much as we are used to.

(3) It’s important to know that this is absolutely fine. One’s obligation only really includes locating large pieces of chametz; getting rid of crumbs (and anything less than a Kezayit) is unnecessary.

(4) Therefore, people can do their best to clean, get rid of any obvious pieces of chametz lying around the house, but no need to go crazy.

(5) Obviously, if the kitchen is being used, it needs to be kashered and cleaned.

(6) After that, the Bitul we do on Erev Pesach is sufficient.
