PREVENTION

There is currently no vaccine to prevent novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure to this virus. These everyday preventive actions are adapted from the CDC to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home and keep children home from school when sick.  Follow your physician and ACHD guidelines regarding returning to work/school following an illness.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC recommends that all people wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 

Additionally, the CDC and other public health agencies recommend that all persons 6 months and older receive a flu shot.
