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. (Focus on just no touching above the shoulders helps)
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.
Wear a Face Mask or Face Covering when Social Distancing is not possible.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. For more information about the coronavirus, please visit the NYS Department of Health (www.health.ny.gov) and the Centers for Disease Control (www.cdc.gov) websites.
