Prevention

Health officials recommend taking the same precautions for COVID-19 as you would for avoiding colds and the flu: 

  • 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. Here are educational videos in a variety of languages on how to wash your hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, like phones, tables, doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Social Distance
