Basic Prevention

  • Minimizing exposure is especially important for people who are 65 or older or who have underlying health conditions such as, heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or cancer. Those individuals in this group have a higher risk of developing this severe disease. The safest thing for them, during an outbreak, will be to stay home as much as possible to minimize close contact with others
  • Those who are are sheltering at home should discuss with the doctor about getting additional prescription medications, have enough household items and groceries on hand

  • Limit gatherings to 10 individuals or less

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • Wear a well-fitting mask that covers the mouth and nose completely

  • Stay home if you are feeling sick
