Tips for Prevention

Personal actions by individuals are important to keeping themselves, their families, coworkers and our community healthy. Please remember the following good health habits:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Always wash your hands after you have used the bathroom and before eating.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap is not available. 
  • Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth. These are the primary entrance points for COVID-19 infection.
