Public Health officials strongly encourage you to take these important steps:
Cover your mouth - when you cough or sneeze use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
Wash your hands- with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitizing gel.
Stay at home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
Frequently clean touch points such as doorknobs, handles, and common surface areas.
