Prevention Tips

A new kind of five

Take similar precautions as you would during the flu season. The best way to prevent the spread of this new virus is to cover your cough, stay home when you’re sick and avoid being within six feet of others who might be sick.

More recommendations from the CDC include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • When using a hand sanitizer, make sure it contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Don’t shake hands. It’s not about being rude, it’s just being careful.
  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies)
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Take good care of yourself. For example, quite smoking. The healthier you are, the better your chances of “weathering the storm.”
  • Consider what you would do if schools or daycares close.
  • Practice social distancing... stay 6 feet away from others.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
