The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. You can take steps to slow the spread:
- Face Coverings
- When you're around others, wear a face covering over your mouth and nose.
- Physical Distancing
- Hand Washing
- Wash your hands often with soap and water (for 20+ seconds).
- If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
