COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

Preventive Measures

Recommendations from the CDC.

  • Stay home, separate yourself from others and get medical care if needed.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes.
  • Clean your hands often. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95 percent alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. It is preferable for soap and water to be used if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid sharing household and other personal items with others.
  • Clean "high-touch" surfaces every day.
  • If you do feel ill, call your healthcare provider before going to the health office.
