Know How it Spreads

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

How to Protect Yourself and Your Family 

Como proteger a usted y a su familia

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands¬†often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available,¬†use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching¬†your eyes, nose, and mouth¬†with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

  • Avoid close contact¬†with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

Limpia tus manos con frecuencia

  • L√°vese las manos a menudo con agua y jab√≥n durante al menos 20 segundos, especialmente despu√©s de haber estado en un lugar p√ļblico,¬† despu√©s de sonarse la nariz, toser o estornudar.
  • Si no hay agua y jab√≥n disponibles, use un desinfectante para manos que contenga al menos 60% de alcohol. Cubra todas las superficies de sus manos y fr√≥telas hasta que se sientan secas.
  • Evite tocarse los ojos, la nariz y la boca con las manos sin lavar.

Evitar el contacto cercano

  • Evitar el contacto cercano con personas que est√°n enfermas
  • Ponga distancia entre usted y otras personas si COVID-19 se est√° extendiendo en su comunidad. Esto es especialmente importante para las personas que corren un mayor riesgo de enfermarse gravemente.
