· Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
· Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
· If someone does become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, they should stay away from work, school, or other people to avoid spreading illness.
