Protect Yourself from COVID-19

Protect Yourself and Others from COVID-19


Here are the simple steps to take for protection from COVID-19.


    1. Wash hands frequently, especially after sneezing, coughing, blowing the nose, or touching common surfaces as door handles, keyboards, public touch screens, etc.
    2. When possible, sneeze or cough into a tissue and dispose of it safely and immediately.
    3. Wear disposable gloves and change them frequently if there is a need to frequently touch common surfaces.
    4. Avoid coming within six feet of others. 
    5. Use disinfectant wipes often on any frequently touched surfaces.
    6. Those over 65 years old should stay at home if there is an epidemic.
    7. According to the CDC, everyone should wear a face mask when out in public. Exceptions are children under age 2, anyone having trouble breathing, anyone unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. 
  • While it may not be possible to guarantee invulnerability, following these precautions, will greatly increase safety from COVID-19.
