  • Practice everyday preventive actions: Cover nose and mouth, wash hands with soap and water, avoid close contact with sick people, if sick stay home
  • People at high risk or with an illness: Practice everyday preventive actions, visit your primary care doctor, health department or pharmacy in close proximity to your home
