Prevention & Treatment
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 spay or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If soap is not readily available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
