Steps to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent coronavirus:

 

 

1. Stay home when sick.
2. Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not
available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
3. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough, or sneeze then throw the tissue in
the trash.
4. Ensure frequent cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched objects and surfaces.
