Precautionary Measures

You can help prevent yourself from getting or spreading the coronavirus – and other respiratory illnesses – by following these steps:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. Use 70 per cent alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water not available.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
