  • Avoid touching your face
  • Cover your mouth with tissues when you sneeze and immediately discard them in the trash
  • Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms
  • Frequently clean touched surfaces
  • Practice social distancing, such as avoiding handshakes or giving more space between people when having face to face conversations.
