The best prevention from contracting the coronavirus continues to be taking steps to stop the germs:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. 
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing 
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth  
  • Stay home if you are sick 
  • Stay away from people who are sick 
  • Refrain from shaking hands and instead bump elbows (no fist-bumps)
