Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. When tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleansing spray or wipe.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% - 95% alcohol.
