Prevent Respiratory Illness

-It's in your hands!

  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water. If you don’t have soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Try not to touch your face with unwashed hands.
  • Don’t touch or shake hands with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you’re sick, and keep your children home when they’re sick.
