How to Reduce the Risk and Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
The best way to reduce the risk of getting sick, as with seasonal colds or the flu, still applies to COVID-19:
- Stay home if you are sick, unless seeking medical care.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Cover your cough or sneeze.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when out in public.
- Use alternatives to shaking hands, like an elbow bump or wave.
- If you have recently returned from a country, state or region with ongoing spread of COVID-19, monitor your health and follow the instructions of public health officials.
