Avoiding Covid-19

Preventing this virus is as easy as avoiding contact with others

  • Avoid any busy area like grocery stores, pharmacies, and public gatherings.
  • Stay 6 feet away from all people at all times.
  • Wash your hands several times every day – even at home.
    • Definitely wash your hands after being outside of your home for any reason.
  • Avoid contact with any sick people. Anyone with a cough or sneeze should be avoided.
  • As people enter your home have them wash their hands immediately.
    • Leave shoes and coats at the door.
    • If they’ve been in public places it’s even best to have them change clothes.
