Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What precautions can I take?

A. All recommendations emphasize the importance of the basics of virus/flu prevention:

     • stay home when sick

    • wash hands frequently with soap and water (some estimates say you reduce your 

     chances of catching the virus by up to 60% with frequent hand-washing)

     • use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content when soap and water is 

      not available

     • cover nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing

      (or a shirt sleeve or elbow if no tissue is available) and wash hands

      after disposing of the tissue in a proper trash receptacle

     • don’t touch your face, mouth, nose, or eyes with your hands

     • stay 6 feet or further from people who are ill

Q. Where can I find more information?

Because this is an emerging virus, new information is discovered every day.  The CDC website is the best source of accurate information.
