Practice Daily Prevention Care

As a reminder, we should all be practicing daily preventive care to avoid infection and viruses. These are the same precautions to avoid the flu:

  • Wash your hands frequently with water and soap for at least 20 seconds: especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.  If water and soap are not available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with 60-95% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.  If tissues are not available, cough or sneeze inside of your bent elbow.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick with respiratory symptoms including fever and cough. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at home, work, and school.
  • Practices healthy habits: get plenty of sleep; be physically active; manage your stress; drink plenty of fluids; and eat nutritious food.
  • If you have not received your annual flu shot, please schedule one with your provider to help protect yourself against the flu.
  • Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask:  CDC does not recommend that people--who are well--wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
