Best Practices for Preventing Illness
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from close person-to-person and possibly from contact with infected surfaces or objects. The following actions help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases: 

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

• Stay home when you’re sick

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands

• 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 soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (especially cell phones) using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of disease to others.
