Preventative Actions

Below are links to recommended preventative actions from the CDC and NYS pertaining to the Coronavirus:

Useful Tips:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask:
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19
    • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others
    • The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and those who are taking care of people in close setting (at home or in a health care facility)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • If you have recently traveled or plan on travelling, view the CDC’s specific guidance for travelers
