The best way to prevent the spread of infections is to:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
  • avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • cough and sneeze into your sleeve and not your hands.
  • and stay home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others.
