Keeping Yourself Safe

COVID-19 is usually spread from close person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing. The virus can also be spread through airborne transmission, when tiny droplets remain in the air even after the ill person leaves the area. The best way to protect yourself is to follow the tips below.

  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren't available.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or flexed elbow, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, sneezing or coughing.
  • Stay home when you're sick.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects people frequently touch.

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses which can cause illnesses such as the common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). In 2019, a new coronavirus was identified as the cause of a disease outbreak in China. The disease it causes is called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
