Please remember these helpful hints to protect ourselves from any viruses:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for no less than 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Refrain from shaking hands when greeting others.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow, not into your hands. You may also use a tissue when you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose. Quickly throw away used tissues then wash your hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Most germs spread when a sick person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
- Do not share food, utensils, beverages, towels, lip balm/lipstick, phones, or anything else that might become contaminated with germs.
- If you are suffering from a respiratory illness and running a fever >100 degrees, please remain home until you are well.
