Health is in our hands! With COVID-19 spreading, let’s take simple, but effective steps to slow the spread and protect our health. Here are some simple, everyday ways to do just that:
Cover Your Cough
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put your used tissue in the waste basket
Sneeze in Your Sleeve
If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
You may be asked to put on a facemask to protect others.
Wash hands often with soap and warm water for 15 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
