How can I best protect myself from getting COVID-19, or any other virus?

During the Declaration of Emergency, the government asks that you remain indoors, going to stores for essentials and going outside for exercise and fresh air only if you are healthy. While out of your home please:

  • Practice social distancing – keep six feet away from others not living in the same household as you
  • Wear a mask or scarf that coves your nose and mouth where social distancing is not possible, such as in a grocery store
  • Cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue, then place the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands, or cough/sneeze into your bent elbow
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer where soap and water are not readily available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth without first washing your hands
  • Do not shake or hold hands

When you return home, wash your hands using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Do not share personal items such as toothbrushes, utensils, drinks or towels.
