What You Can Do

Take steps to protect yourself and your loved ones.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay at home if you’re sick and limit your contact with others.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze and wash your hands after.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
