The virus is thought to spread through person-to-person contact in the following ways:
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place or blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub until they feel dry.
Stay away from people who are sick and stay home as much as possible. Keeping your distance from people is important because some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus.
Everyone, age 2 and older, should wear a cloth face cover when in public and continue to practice social distancing. The cloth cover will help reduce the spread of infection. For instructions to make your own face cover, visit: https://bit.ly/2zjTQpJ
