How to shelter-in place when not home

What if I can't get to a shelter-in-place location that can be sealed?

Move quickly to a small room with the least amount of windows and outdoor walls. Use any material in the area to block air from easily flowing into the room. This can include packing tape, rugs, plastic bags, newspaper or clothing. These are not the preferred materials for sealing a room, but would be better than no protective measures.
