  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Follow masking guidelines
  • Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, and other frequently touched items.
