CDC Reminders on Staying Healthy

Protect yourself & your family

  •       Wash your hands with fragrance free soap & water for at least 20 seconds
  •       Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  •       Avoid touching your eyes, nose, & mouth with unwashed hands
  •       Avoid close contact with people who are sick

* Frequent washing of hands can lead to dry and cracked skin, make sure to pat your hands dry, leave a small amount of dampness on your hands and then moisturize to lock in the water. Ideal moisturizers should not have perfume, anti-aging properties, or allergens. Hand creams are usually better than body lotions.

Protect others

  • If you can, stay home while you are sick, except to get medical attention
  • Cover coughs & sneezes with a tissue if possible & make sure to throw the tissue away. If no tissue is available, cough or sneeze on the inside of your elbow
  • Clean & disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily like doorknobs, light switches, counter tops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, & sinks. Make sure to use gloves when handling cleaning supplies

What steps should you take if you are sick?

  •     Stay home & avoid public areas & public transportation
  •     Separate yourself from other people & animals in your home
  •     Call ahead to your doctor & tell them you may have COVID-19
  •     Cover your coughs & sneezes
  •     Clean your hands often for 20 seconds or longer
  •     Avoid touching other people
  •     Do not share personal household items & wash thoroughly when they are done
  •     Ask your healthcare provider to contact the health department
  •     If you have to call 911, let them know you may have COVID-19
