COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019-nCov)

These are the basics you need to know

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Social distancing: Put distance between yourself and other people. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  •  If you are sick, please stay home.
