    Tips for your safety: The best way to prevent illness is to take every-day preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:   

    • 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 your hands are visibly dirty.  
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Stay home if you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work and school.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
