Wash your hands
Tips for Avoiding COVID-19
Mar 17

Here are tips for avoiding contracting COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Hum the complete “Happy Birthday” song to be sure you’ve washed thoroughly. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay away from crowded areas. Maintain at least six feet of distance between you and another person.
  • Cover your cough in your elbow, not your hand, if you don’t have a tissue.
  • The Centers for Disease Control recommends that for the next eight weeks individual and group organizers cancel any event with 50 or more people. State agencies have also put in place rules to discourage the spread of the disease. These social distancing protocols – putting distance between yourself and other people – can help prevent the spread of this contagious disease. By doing so, you’ll help preserve the healthcare system’s capacity to help those who are sick. Stay home if you feel sick to help you recover and prevent spread of your illness. For individual state guidance, see your public health department:
  • Massachusetts Department of Public Health
  • State of Rhode Island Department of Health
  • New York State Department of Health
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Remember to clean your phone, doorknobs, light switches, faucets, keyboards, and countertops.
  • Follow organization guidance on workplace and school closing protocols.
  • Call your doctor or telehealth provider if you have a fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath.

See the Centers for Disease Control for the most current updates.
