Staying Healthy

Personal Health Recommendations

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe, such as Clorox (remember this is a bleaching agent).
  • Follow CDC's recommendations for using a face mask.
    • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering.
    • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
    • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face.
    • Make sure you can breath easily.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid travel if you are sick.
