Wash your hands
Use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds. To prevent the spread of germs, wash your hands often throughout the day, especially after coughing, sneezing, using the restroom or before handling food!
Use hand sanitizer when you’re on the go and can’t wash.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, not your hands. Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Don’t share food, drinks, utensils, or similar items.
If you're sick
If you’re sick, stay home from school or work. Avoid close contact with others.
