Preventing Illness

Public health officials recommend the following to reduce risk of any viral respiratory infection.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid face touching, especially eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or cover mouth and nose with a tissue; throw it in the trash after single use and wash hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Stay at home if you are feeling ill.
  • Do not return to school or work until you have been fever and/or vomit-free for 24 hours.
