Coronavirus Prevention

There are some everyday preventive steps you can take to keep you and your family healthy. Although there is currently no vaccine for coronavirus, you can help protect yourself and your family by doing the same things you would to prevent other respiratory sickness, the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) says.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has issued the following prevention tips.

Coronavirus prevention tips include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your arm or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces.
