How to Protect Yourself / What to Do

Reduce the spread of infection with these simple daily practices.

Replace handshakes with a fist bump, slight bow or elbow bump.

Use your elbow to touch elevator buttons and light switches.

When possible, one doors with your hip or a closed fist.

Use disinfectant wipes to clean frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Wash your hands often with soap and water (for at least 30 seconds). If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer instead.

Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer inside your car and at all of your home’s entrances.

Use a tissue to block your cough or sneeze, then toss it in the garbage and wash your hands immediately.
