Individuals are encouraged to take precautions to avoid the spread of infection, such as washing hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home if you have symptoms of illness. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends older adults and those with compromised immune systems or serious underlying health conditions take extra precautions. Here are some other guidelines:

  • Stay home if you have symptoms of acute respiratory illness (e.g. cough, shortness of breath) or a fever (100.4 or higher on an oral thermometer) or signs of a fever.
  • Stay home until you’re fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicines.
  • Immediately leave your workplace if you begin to have acute respiratory illness symptoms (i.e. cough, shortness of breath).
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing (or an elbow or shoulder if no tissue is available).
  • Wash your hands often (especially before eating) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Greet people without touching.
  • Put a plan together for what you will do if you or a family member who is at high risk becomes sick.
