Prevention

  • Coronavirus is a new or “novel” virus. No one is naturally immune to it. Children and teens are best overcome by the virus. According to the CDC, older people and those with underlying health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease) are considered to be at higher risk. Caution is also required around people with developing or weakened immune systems.
  • To help prevent the spread of the virus:
  • Be at least six feet away from others
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill or appear
  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Cancel events and avoid groups, celebrations, play dates and non-potential appointments
  • Stay at home when you are sick, except for medical care
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask. At the very least, use a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
