In brief: Mask
You can wear a surgical mask or a scarf even.
I dont recoomend gloves. Carry instant hand sanitizer so u can quickly sanitize after you touch something.

In brief: Paranoia
Your question has some anxiety component.
Short answer: no. I suggest you talk to your pcp or psychiatrist to diminish your anxiety. Also follow what everybody is doing. Mask, gloves are rare think when there are no epidemics.
