COVID-19 can spread from person-to-person very easily through respiratory droplets. It is possible for an infected individual to transmit this disease without showing any symptoms. The best way to prevent the spread of a virus within a community is by practicing the following:

Stay home if you are experiencing any signs of illness

  • Wash your hands often with running water and soap for at least 20 seconds
  • Minimize close contact with individuals in a public environment by avoiding large gatherings and practicing social distancing through maintaining a distance of at least six feet from others
  • Wear a face covering over your mouth and nose to protect others from your respiratory droplets in situations when you are unable to maintain social distancing
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing
  •  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using standard cleaning products, according to the product’s manufacturer label. Surfaces should be allowed to air dry.
