Remember that the best thing you can do in the face of COVID-19 is to take precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your community:

  • Wear a face covering any time you are out in public.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; dry hands with a clean towel or air dry hands.

 

  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
     

  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing.
     

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
     

  • Stay home when you are sick.
     

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
     

  • Clean “high-touch” surfaces daily. These include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, desks, and tablets.
