- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- If you are sick, stay home!
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- When traveling, monitor CDC advisories and obey restrictions and quarantines
