Avoid all unnecessary events, travel, or interactions. Stay at home as much as you can. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Always wear a cloth face mask. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Do not use your hands.

If you have one of the emergency warning signs (including trouble breathing), get medical attention right away. Call 9-1-1 if necessary and tell them you may have COVID-19
