Health experts continue to stress the best form of precaution against the virus is to be diligent with taking preventative measures. The suggested recommendations include:

• Wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soapy water. If available, use hand sanitizer. Avoid handshaking.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid contact with people who are sick. Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing. If contact is necessary, maintain a six-foot separation from those who are sick.

• Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others. Also, attempt to maintain separation from others in your home if you are sick.

• Take extra precautions if you or those you have come in contact with have recently traveled to regions of countries with a high risk of exposure and/or outbreaks of COVID-19. If you are concerned, the State Department of Health’s Coronavirus hotline is 1-833-427-5634 that you can use to call and talk to someone.

• Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals to ensure a healthy immune system.
