With the recent outbreak of coronavirus, it is important to follow basic protective measures to take care of your health and protect others. Amidst the panic towards this global pandemic, following these measures based on the World Health Organization's health advisory can help protect your community. 

Remember that vulnerable populations, especially the elderly, immunocompromised individuals, and young children have a higher risk of getting sick. 

Wash Your Hands Frequently 

Kill viruses that may be on your hands by thoroughly cleaning your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer regularly. 

Avoid Touching Eyes, Mouth, and Nose

Your hands may touch surfaces that can pick up the virus and then transfer it to your eyes, mouth, or nose. The virus can then enter the body and make you sick.

Maintain Social Distancing

Do not shake hands with anyone. Maintain at least 3 feet from other individuals, especially if they are coughing or sneezing. 

Practice Proper Respiratory Hygiene

Cover you mouth and nose whenever you cough or sneeze. Remember to bend your elbow or use a tissue to prevent contamination.

Seek Medical Care Early

If you or someone you know has a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, make sure to seek medical care as soon as possible. 

Keep up to date with reputable sources about the spread of the virus in your local community.
