Wear a mask, Watch your distance, Wash your hands!
The following are the best methods of prevention in avoiding exposure to the virus:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating, after going to the bathroom, and after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can be used if soap and water are not readily available.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick, and keep children at home when they are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning sprays or disinfecting wipes.
