Protect Yourself Against COVID-19
[Updated April 27, 2020 at 11:40 a.m. – this information is subject to change.]

Handwashing is your best defense against a range of illnesses, including COVID-19. Wash your hands often to help prevent exposure to, and transmission of, illness.

Other usual health precautions that can help you protect yourself against COVID-19 and other illnesses:

  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • Staying home if you are sick
  • Practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette by coughing/sneezing into a tissue, or into your sleeve or arm (and immediately washing your hands afterwards)
  • Not touching your face (A virus's port of entry is your eyes, nose, mouth)
  • Cleaning your hands before eating/drinking
  • Cleaning frequently touched objects and surfaces, like bathroom sinks, kitchen counters, etc.
Physical distancing, including self-monitoring and self-isolation, are public health measures that can delay and decrease the number of cases of COVID-19 over time so as not to overwhelm our healthcare system. Physical distancing involves taking steps to limit the number of people you come into close contact with.Click here to learn more about physical distancing.
