Everyday preventative actions can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • 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.
  • Individuals who are experiencing symptoms and may have traveled to areas of concern, or who have been in contact with somebody who has traveled to these areas, should call ahead to their healthcare provider before presenting for treatment.
  • The flu, which has similar symptoms, is currently being spread in New York State. Those diagnosed with the flu should not go out in public, other than to seek medical care, until their temperature is less than 100° for 24 hours.

You may also want to consider voluntarily self-isolating at home for two weeks should you or anyone in your home show any similar symptoms, to help avoid the potential spread of COVID-19 as well as other illnesses which present similarly. For more information on influenza, visit the CDC website.
