CORONAVIRUS QUICK FACTS

The best way to prevent getting coronavirus (COVID-19) is to avoid exposure. This is the only current proven prevention method as neither a vaccine or proven therapy have been developed.

How can exposure be reduced? The virus is thought to mainly be spread from person-to-person contact by spread of droplets. These droplets spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes. Therefore, it is important to:

  • Maintain a distance of at least six feet away from others when in public.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol. For more guidance on proper hand washing, refer to this article.
  • Wear a mask or face covering when entering spaces that have multiple people, and indoors. For more guidance, refer here.
