  • Regularly wash your hands with soap and water/use alcohol-based hand sanitizer in between
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces – doorknobs, light switches, counters, keyboards, phones
  • Sneeze or cough into the bend of your elbow or use a tissue to keep germs from spreading
  • Throw all tissues in the trash and wash hands after emptying a trash can
  • Don’t share food, drink, cups, spoons, forks, etc. with anyone
  • Don’t go to work or school if you are sick
