How Can I Help Protect Myself and Our Community From Getting Sick With Novel Coronavirus?

Public Health officials strongly recommend avoiding non-essential travel 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.

  • Get a flu shot to help prevent influenza, which has symptoms similar to novel coronavirus.
