PREVENTING THE SPREAD

The best way to prevent infection is to do your best to avoid exposure to this virus. To prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, the CDC recommends everyday preventive actions, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wear face-covering in public, especially when physical distancing is not possible.
  • At this time, the CDC has recommended that only those who are not fully vaccinated continue the use of a mask.

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. The CDC also offers specific guidance for travelers.
