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 Coronavirus. As a reminder, the CDC always recommends these preventive actions to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and other respiratory diseases:
- Stay home, except to go out for groceries, medications, necessary health care, and if you are an essential worker.
- Practice social distancing – keep at least 6 feet between yourself and other people. Do not gather in groups. Stay out of crowded places.
- New Jersey requires that everyone wear a face covering over their nose and mouth in supermarkets, convenient stores, pharmacies and all essential businesses (including restaurants), and on all public transportation. The only exceptions: those who cannot for medical reasons, and children 2 years of age and younger.
- Stay home from work when you are sick.
- 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.
- 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.
