COVID has reminded us about best practices in keeping us safe from any illness.

  • If you are sick, stay home.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Wash your hands often and properly (soap and water, for at least 20 seconds).

  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces or objects.

  • If you must sneeze or cough and have no tissue available, do so in the inside of your elbow, not into your hands or into the air.
