Take steps to protect yourself from Coronavirus Disease
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.
Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
Avoid close contact keeping a distance of six feet away from 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, 60+ years of age, and those with pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart or pulmonary disease, hypertension, or immunocompromised.
Stay at home if you are considered a higher risk person
Cover coughs and sneezes
Cover your mouth and nose with 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.
Stay home if you’re sick
