How can I help protect myself from getting sick with novel coronavirus?
Public Health officials strongly recommends avoiding non-essential trips away from home and practicing social distancing. Use everyday preventive actions to keep from catching an infection, including novel coronavirus:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick. Stay away from work, school and other people if you become sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
