These are steps you can take proactively to reduce the spread of novel coronavirus:

  • If sick (fever/cough) STAY HOME.
  • Cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue or your arm.

  • Wash your hands or use alcohol-based sanitizer often throughout the day.

  • Get in the habit of NOT touching your face so often.

  • Disinfect high-touch areas throughout the day. Don’t forget phones, light switches, door handles, and keyboards.

  • Forgo the handshake for a wave or “elbow bump”.

  • Eat healthy, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest.

To prepare for a pandemic at home you should consider:

  • Having plans to care for family members when schools, daycares, or senior centers are closed. It is encouraged to have a plan and a backup plan.

  • Having enough non-perishable food at home so trips to the grocery store can be limited or avoided for at least 3 – 4 weeks.

  • Cleaning your living area more often, including wiping down small electronics, door handles, and other items commonly touched by many people.
