Take Steps to Protect Yourself

  • 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.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
