7 Ways to Prevent the Spread of the New CORONAVIRUS


1.  WASH YOUR HANDS - Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song.)  Use 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.


2. AVOID CLOSE CONTACT WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK - Try to keep a six feet distance from people who are coughing or show respiratory symptoms.


3. AVOID TOUCHING EYES, NOSE, AND MOUTH - The virus can live on contaminated surfaces and objects, so try to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.


4. USE A TISSUE - Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your bent elbow, and immediately dispose of tissues in the trash and wash your hands.


5. WEAR A MASK WHEN INSTRUCTED BY A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL


6. CLEAN SURFACES REGULARLY - Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spread or wipe.


7. STAY HOME IS YOU ARE SICK - If possible, stay home if you are sick to prevent transmitting the virus to others. If you think you may have been exposed to the virus, contact a health care provider promptly if you develop a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.  Before you go to a clinic or hospital, call ahead so the staff can take appropriate precautions.


BY USING THESE EVERYDAY PRECAUTIONS, YOU WILL HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE NEW CORONAVIRUS.
