Ways To Prevent Illness

  • Wash your hands using the following steps:
    • Wet your hands with clean, running water and apply soap.
    • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap.
    • Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
    • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
    • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
    • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
  • If soap and water aren’t available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub together until they’re dry.
  • Try not to touch your face.
  • Maintain at least three feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily (doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, sinks, etc.). View a disinfection guide on the CDC’s website here.

If You Think You’re Sick

  • Call your healthcare provider first to inform them of your symptoms.
  • Avoid close contact with others. Only leave your home to see medical care (if necessary).
  • Cough into your elbow or a tissue. Throw the tissue in the trash and then wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
