Tips to Prevent the Spread

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed:

  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Only go out for essentials (e.g. groceries, medications) once a week
  • Practice physical distancing when you are out
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds
    • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill
  • Stay home when you are ill
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands
    • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
