COVID-19 Prevention

Personal Prevention

The best prevention for COVID-19, and any other virus, such as the cold or flu, is to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Please stay home and avoid contact with others if you are sick.
