Individual Steps for Preventing the Spread

  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water, or hand sanitizer if those are not available.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  3. Wear a face covering when social distancing is not possible.
  4. Avoid close contact with those who are sick - this protects you, as well as the people around you who may be more at risk if they were to get ill.
  5. Stay at home if you are sick, except to get medical care.  If you believe you may have the coronavirus, remember to call ahead, if possible, to allow the medical facility to prepare for your arrival.
  6. Cover coughs and sneezes.  Remember to:
  • Use the inside of your elbow
  • Use a tissue and throw the used tissue immediately in the trash
  • Immediately wash your hands
  • Use a face mask if you are sick or going to a public space
