An ounce of prevention…
|Clean your hands often|
|Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds |
especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of
your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching
your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
|Cover coughs and sneezes|
|Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or |
use the inside of your elbow.Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand-sanitizer
that contains at least 60% alcohol.
|Avoid close contact|
|Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Put distance between |
yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
