Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home.
Stay at least 6 feet (about two arms’ length) from other people.
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
Cover coughs and sneezes and immediately wash your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
