What You Can Do Today

  1. Reduce Your Risk of Being Infected or Infecting Others
  2. Follow Declarations Issued
  3. Stay Informed From Trusted Sites

We can do a few things and we’ve probably heard them all before. They won’t guarantee to protect us from infection, but they can reduce our risk of infection. These are just as useful for avoiding influenza (flu) virus infection during flu season and for preventing COVID-19, once the local community is known to have it circulating.

Wash your hands for 20 seconds & more frequently than you do now. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Try not to touch your face.

Stay home if you are sick, and avoid close contact with people who 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.
