Know the best ways to protect from the Coronavirus.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Prevention
There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. As a reminder, the CDC always recommends these everyday preventive actions to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and other respiratory diseases:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; coming in from outside; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Soap and water are always best! If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home from school and work when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your arm, then throw away the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as doorknobs, faucet handles, refrigerator and oven doors, countertops, etc., using a regular household disinfectant spray or wipe.
- Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask.
- The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
- Face masks should be used by people who have symptoms of the Coronavirus to help prevent spreading the disease to others. Face masks are crucial for health care workers and people taking care of those who are in close settings (at home or at a health care facility).
These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses and illnesses.
