Here’s what you can do:
Wash your hands! One of the simplest prevention measures one can take is proper hand-washing.
The CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water before eating, after using the bathroom, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, and before and after caring for a sick friend or a family member.
Stay home when you are sick! Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
“Should I wear a facemask?” The CDC recommends that only patients with the coronavirus wear a face mask to protect others around them, or, if the patient cannot wear a face mask, others should if they are in the same room together.
Health officials are not recommending that healthy people buy masks at this time.
