Simple, easy and routine hygiene practices can reduce the spread of germs and help protect your health:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick

  • Practice social distancing - this means putting distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community (this is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick)
  • Stay home if you are sick

  • Clean high touch surfaces frequently with regular household cleaners or diluted bleach

  • Change how you greet one another - exchange a handshake, hug or kiss for a friendly wave or an elbow bump

  • Self-monitor and if you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and share your recent travel history with your health care provider

Also, take a few simple, practical steps to prepare yourself and your household.
