Protecting ourselves and our loved ones during this COVID19 pandemic involves things we can all do: 1. Wash hands. 2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. 3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 4. Stay home when sick. 5. Cover your cough with your elbow. If you use a tissue, clean your hands. 6. Face masks might help people who are sick not spread germs when around others, but they are not needed if you are well unless you’re in close contact with someone who is sick. These are in short supply, so please do not use them unnecessarily. Your healthcare provider or caretaker might need it one day. 7. Wash frequently touched surfaces.
