Take appropriate steps to protect yourself and your family from Coronavirus, but panic is counterproductive and could cause more harm to yourself, your family, and others than the COVID-19 Virus. Stay calm, protect yourself, and don't clog the healthcare system with minor symptoms. We must save hospital beds for those in the most need.


CDC Recommendations

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
  • Avoid touching eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with individuals who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick. The CDC recommends that individuals remain home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or signs of a fever (i.e., chills, feeling warm, flushed appearance).
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately discard the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces areas (doors, elevator buttons, handles, desktops, phones, keyboards)
