Prevention is Still the Key To Staying COVID-19 Free
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. As another weekend is upon us, many have plans go out to get some shopping done or perhaps enjoy a little social gathering. The WWHD reminds residents to practice the actions outlined below to help prevent the spread of this illness.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should:
- Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask or cloth face cover when around others.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
In today’s new world, an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of the cure.
