1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Follow closely all recommendations to avoid close contact with others.
2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating and touching your face, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
3. Avoid making contact with your eyes, nose and mouth if at all possible.
4. If you are sick, stay home to help prevent the spread of the disease.
