  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizing gels and liquids if soap and water are not readily available.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Try to avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • When sick yourself, stay home to protect others.
  • Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect areas and objects that are touched frequently, such as desks, phones, door handles, etc.
