- Try to avoid situations and places where people gather, and refrain from talking face-to-face with others as much as you can.
- If possible, shelter-in-place — even if your city or state has not recommended it.
- Disinfect and wipe down frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, countertops and light switches. Tap or click here for other easily missed surfaces to sanitize.
- If you do not have disinfecting wipes of your own, use a solution of at least 65% alcohol, or one part bleach and five parts water, with dry paper towels to clean surfaces.
- Wash hands frequently, including after every time you leave your home.
- Wash with warm soapy water for 20 seconds and, if you can’t wash, use hand sanitizer and rub into your hands until it’s gone.
