Protect Yourself From the Virus
Steps to protect yourself and others against the spread of coronavirus:
Wash Your Hands
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 hand sanitizer. See how to wash your hands properly.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick and practice social distancing (putting space between yourself and others) with all, especially if you are at higher risk. Follow government guidance about staying home and only go out for necessities like grocery shopping.
Cover Your Mouth and Nose
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow. Throw your tissue away immediately. Avoid touching your face. The CDC recommends that everyone wear a mask in public.
Clean and Disinfect
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
If You Are Sick
Stay home. Do not leave your home except for medical care, if you have coronavirus symptoms.
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 able to wear a facemask, (e.g., because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
