Many of the things we do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect us against other respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:
Proper Handwashing guide & video
Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
There are currently no vaccines available to protect against this novel coronavirus infection.
We can all help prevent the spread of COVID-19 with social distancing:
Call/Facetime/online chat with friends and familyStay home as much as you canIf you must go out:
Don’t gather in groupsStay 6 feet away from others
Don’t shake hands or hug
And please continue to wash your hands frequently
