Ways to prevent the spread of illness

  • You can decrease the risk of becoming ill with a cold, flu or coronavirus by taking the following precautions:

    • Cover your cough or sneeze by bending your arm across your face and covering your nose and mouth with the inside of your elbow. Do not use your hands.

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

    • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

    • Clean items and areas in your home that are touched many times. These may include counters, light switches, cell phones, electronic remotes, and areas in the bathroom.

    • If you or your children have any chronic illnesses, contact your primary health care provider for additional information and steps to take to avoid becoming ill.
