  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. if you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
