Coronavirus Prevention

Until a vaccine is developed, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. You can do that by taking the same steps you would take to prevent the spread of other respiratory viruses. That includes:

  • Cleaning your hands regularly and thoroughly with an alcohol-based hand rub or washing them with soap and water;
  • Maintaining at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing;
  • Refraining from touching your eyes, nose and mouth, where the virus can be transmitted into your body;
  • Covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze, then disposing of the used tissue immediately.

To avoid misinformation about COVID-19, look to trustworthy sources, such as the CDC, the World Health Organization, and local health departments websites to stay informed. 

You can access more information about coronavirus prevention on the CDC website.
