  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, with your elbow or with a tissue, which should promptly be disposed of
  • Wash or sanitize hands immediately after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Try new, low-contact ways of greeting your friends and loved ones, including an elbow bump or wave
