Protect Yourself Against Covid-19

Knowledge is Power - Protect Yourself Against Coronavirus/Covid-19

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.

    • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

    • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

Everyone Should

Clean your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Avoid close contact.

Stay home as much as possible.

Put distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and other people.

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.  The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

Cover coughs and sneezes

  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Immediately throw your used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.  This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
