Coronavirus (Covid-19) Preventions


Clean your hands often

    Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

    If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

    Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay home if you’re sick

    Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.

Wear a facemask if you are sick

    If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.

    If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

Avoid close contact

    Put distance between yourself and other people

Cover coughs and sneezes

    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

    Throw used tissues in the trash.

    Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect

    Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

    If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
