PRACTICAL TIPS

Compliance with CDC guidance is critical to minimize the spread of COVID-19.There are simple things the CDC recommends people do to reduce risk of infection and prevent the spread of COVID-19, which are similar to routine flu and other upper respiratory illness prevention measures.

  • Clean your hands – Use soap and water for 20 seconds; use hand sanitizer with minimum 60% alcohol.  Medical experts agree that hand-washing is the most important preventative measure you can take to avoid COVID-19.

  • Proper hygiene - Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; avoid close contact with people who are sick; and regularly clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze – Use your arm or tissue. Immediately throw used tissue in the trash.

  • Social distancing - Avoid handshakes and close contact with others. Maintain social distances of about 6 feet.

  • Self-regulation - Confine yourself at home when sick until advised by your healthcare provider.

  • Crowd avoidance – Use discretion when traveling to impacted areas, urban areas, or large gatherings.  Recently released guidelines from the CDC recommend avoiding groups greater than 10 people.

  • Personal preparedness - Ensure supplies of food, medication, and other items needed for babies and pets are available to last at least 14 days.
