Tips for Staying Safe and Healthy
Stay home if you are sick. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing — do not use your hands.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Do not touch your face with unwashed hands.
Do not shake hands. Instead, wave or elbow bump.
If you have family or friends who are elderly, have compromised immune systems or chronic respiratory issues, do not visit them if you feel sick. Stay home and keep your loved ones safe.
Consider telecommuting, biking, or walking to work if possible.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or disinfecting wipes.
Get your flu shot. Although the flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19, it will help prevent the flu, which has similar symptoms to this Coronavirus.
Masks continue to be required inside all PPNorCal health centers.
