COVID-19 Prevention Tips

While there is currently no vaccine to prevent the coronavirus disease, as a reminder, to help prevent the spread of upper respiratory diseases, the CDC recommends the following steps.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

The CDC has specific guidelines for travelers. Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.
