What Can the Public Do?
As with all illnesses, it is important to take steps to prevent the spread of germs:
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve while coughing or sneezing
- Wash your hands frequently
- Avoid touching your face
- Stay home if you are sick
- If using hand sanitizer, ensure it contains at least 60% alcohol
If you are sick and have symptoms such as a cough and fever, it is recommended that you stay at home and do not attend public gatherings or go to work/school. If you are not sick you should still practice good hand hygiene and avoid sick people.
