COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. Risk of infection is dependent on exposure. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid close contact with people who are sick or showing symptoms, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, avoid large gatherings when possible, avoid unnecessary close social interactions away from home, and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If you are sick, please stay home. Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough and throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
