How Can I help "Stop The Spread"?

Below are some great tips to keep a lot of germs (not just COVID-19!) away: 

  • Practice respiratory etiquette
    • Cover coughs, sneezes, and nose blowing.
  • Toss used tissues ASAP directly into the trash.
  • Wash hands after sneezing, coughing, or touching used tissues.
    • In addition, wash hands before preparing foods, after using the restroom, or changing a diaper. 
    • Check out the hand washing tab for videos and a step-by-step how to properly wash your hands.
  • Use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if hand washing is not possible.
  • Wash your hands if you touched anyone sneezing, coughing, or blowing their nose. 
  • Do not touch your face or eat food with unwashed hands
  • Do not share items such as food, utensils, drinks, towels, or lipstick with others
  • Stay home if you have a fever and cough.
  • Wear a face mask in closed areas (a car, train, bus, waiting room, etc.) to stop the spread of germs if you are sick. 
    • ​If you are not sick, or caring for a sick person, you should not wear a mask.
