[ARCHIVED] Do Not Panic. Just Take Precautions!

Virus Prevention COVID-19

How does it spread?

People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus.  The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching theirs eyes, nose, or mouth.

Help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like COVID-19

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

For more information on COVID-19, please visit the CDC website.
