Maintain social distancing Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who is coughing or sneezing. This helps prevent exposure to illness. Maintain proper social distancing whenever possible.
Practice good respiratory hygiene When coughing or sneezing, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your bent elbow. Dispose of used tissues immediately. If you inadvertently cough or sneeze into your hands, wash your hands right away. Don’t share food, utensils, cups or anything else that might contain germs.
Wash your hands frequently Regularly clean your hands using soap and warm water for 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer in-between hand washings and after touching common surfaces such as doorknobs, railings and tables.
Avoid touching your face Hands touch many common surfaces and can easily transfer a virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. That is a typical way people get sick.
Stay home when feeling ill If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, stay home and seek medical care early. It is best to call your healthcare provider in advance so they can direct you to the proper healthcare facility.
