What should I do?
Take simple steps to prevent respiratory illness and its spread.
Avoid contact with people who have respiratory illness.
Stay home when you are ill.
Isolating yourself while you are ill can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and more common illnesses, like influenza.
Practice social distancing (stay 6 feet from others) to prevent the likelihood you will come in contact with someone who is ill.
Wash your hands.
Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Regularly clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, phones, toilets, etc. with a diluted bleach solution or use a cleaner with a label that claims it can kill human coronaviruses. Make sure to follow the instructions on the label.
To create a bleach solution, use 1 tablespoon bleach to 4 cups of water. Make fresh daily.
Commercially available cleaning products:
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)—Fighting Products
EPA-registered surface disinfectant products that kill the coronavirus that causes COVID-19
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue then throw the tissue in the trash.
Use your elbow or arm if tissues are not available.
Wear a face covering when you are in public to avoid infecting others.
In light of new data about how COVID-19 spreads, along with evidence of widespread COVID-19 illness in communities across the country, CDC recommends that people wear a cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth in the community. This is to protect people around you if you are infected but do not have symptoms.
