HOW CAN I AVOID EXPOSURE AND REDUCE MY RISK OF ILLNESS FROM COVID-19?

 

THERE IS CURRENTLY NO VACCINE TO PREVENT CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19). THE BEST WAY TO PREVENT ILLNESS IS TO AVOID BEING EXPOSED TO THIS VIRUS. HOWEVER, AS A REMINDER, CDC ALWAYS RECOMMENDS EVERYDAY PREVENTIVE ACTIONS TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF RESPIRATORY DISEASES, INCLUDING:

• AVOID CLOSE CONTACT WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK.

• AVOID TOUCHING YOUR EYES, NOSE, AND MOUTH.

• STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK.

• COVER YOUR COUGH OR SNEEZE WITH A TISSUE, THEN THROW THE TISSUE IN THE TRASH.

• CLEAN AND DISINFECT FREQUENTLY TOUCHED OBJECTS AND SURFACES USING A REGULAR HOUSEHOLD CLEANING SPRAY OR WIPE.

• WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN WITH SOAP AND WATER FOR AT LEAST 20 SECONDS, ESPECIALLY AFTER GOING TO THE BATHROOM; BEFORE EATING; AND AFTER BLOWING YOUR NOSE, COUGHING, OR SNEEZING.

• IF SOAP AND WATER ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE, USE AN ALCOHOL-BASED HAND SANITIZER WITH AT LEAST 60% ALCOHOL. ALWAYS WASH HANDS WITH SOAP AND WATER IF HANDS ARE VISIBLY DIRTY.
