WASH YOUR HANDS
Clean hands can be the key to making it through the coronavirus pandemic as healthy as possible. 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, experts recommend using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
Experts also recommend avoiding close contact with people who are sick. Social distancing means keeping reasonable space between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. Avoid large crowds and public gatherings to cut down your risk of contracting the virus.
WEAR A FACE MASK IF YOU ARE SICK
If you are sick, you should wear a face mask when you are around other people. Also put on a mask before entering a health care provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a face mask, try your best to fully cover your coughs and sneezes.
CLEAN AND DISINFECT
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces on a daily basis. If surfaces are dirty, clean them by using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
