• If you are sick, stay home. • Avoid close contact with those who are already sick. • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or the crook of your arm. • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. • Avoid touching others even if if you or they appear to be healthy. • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth. • Avoid large crowds if you are healthy.
ALWAYS BE THOUGHTFUL OF OTHERS! It is important to remember that even if one doesn't actually have Coronavirius, one can be a carrier (and spreading it) simply coming in contact with others who do!
