Steps to Keep Your Family Healthy
To help manage the spread of COVID-19, the most important steps to take are those that help prevent the spread of any illness.
• Protect yourself and others by washing hands often with soap and water; covering your cough and sneeze; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• If you or your child are sick, stay home from school and activities.
• Do not return to school or work until you are feeling better and a fever is gone for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.
• Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home. Keep enough food, regular prescription drugs, and other necessities on hand in case you need to stay home and are not able to go out easily.
• Frequently clean all commonly touched work surfaces, work areas, equipment (e.g., telephones, doorknobs, lunch areas, countertops, copiers, etc.)
