Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, we currently recommend these preventative actions to help stop the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Avoid contact with those who are showing signs and symptoms of illness.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • When handwashing is not accessible, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbows, not into you hands. Dispose of the tissue immediately after.
  • Practice social distancing by maintaining a distance of approximately 6 feet from others in public places
  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain
  • Stay home when you are sick and encourage loved ones to do the same.
