The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. But, Prevention takes everyone, not just healthcare workers. What can you do to help?

1. Wash your hands. This remains the best method to prevent the spread of any virus.

2. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or tissue. Throw tissues directly in the trash.

3. Remain at home if you have any symptoms of a cold or other respiratory virus.

4. Social distancing works. Maintain a distance when speaking with people or walking outside.
