What Are FIVE Things Everyone MUST Do?

Like so many of the easily-transmissible diseases and viruses we prepare for every day in our communities, everyone can prepare with a few simple reminders:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your mouth when you sneeze.
  • Maintain “social distances” of a few feet near people who show symptoms.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home and get medical attention if you are sick.
