Keep your hands clean and keep your distance from sick people.
Wash your hands. Wet your hands with clean running water. Then lather them with soap. Do not miss the backs of your hands, between your fingers or under your nails
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Stay away from anyone with flu-like symptoms. The virus seems to spread through droplets in the air from a cough or sneeze.
Stay home if you are sick.
The most common signs of coronavirus are fever and dry cough. After that comes fatigue and shortness of breath. If you have any of these symptoms, make every effort to remain at home.
Unless you are already infected, facemasks will not help.
Facemasks do not do much to protect you. If you are infected, facemasks can help prevent the spread of the virus to other people.
Stock up on home supplies, medicine, food and essential resources.
Experts suggest stocking at least a 30-day supply of any needed medical prescriptions. You should also do the same for household items like food, laundry detergent and diapers.
Prepare your family, and tell others your plan against Covid-19.
Make sure every member of the family is up-to-date on any and all emergency plans.
Be sure to talk to your child’s school. Know what plans there are for any sort of schedule change. If you have elderly parents or relatives make sure you have a plan for caring for them if they get sick.
With children, keep calm and get the flu shot.
Protect your child by doing the same things you would do during cold and flu season. Encourage them to wash their hands and to move away from people who are coughing or sneezing.
The virus is spreading. Even travel within the United States may be a risk. If you are sick, do not travel. Older people, people with weak immune systems and pregnant women should not travel.
Follow this guide carefully in order to prevent catching and spreading Covid-19. Keep you and your family safe from Coronavirus!
