Recommendations from the CDC
While the immediate risk of COVID-19 to the general American public is believed to be low at this time, the CDC recommends individuals and their families practice the following every day preventive measures:
- 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 available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- 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.
- Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
- Consult with your healthcare provider if you or your household members are at high risk for COVID-19 complications.
- Regular use of these measures will help increase community preparedness and resilience for responding to the outbreak.
