As a reminder, it is essential for everyone in the community to continue to practice good hand-hygiene, wear a face-covering, social distancing, and limit time spent in public places as much as possible.

 

Practice the 3 W’s - Wash your hands. Watch your distance. Wear a face covering.

 

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, avoid touching your face, cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.

 

  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available.

 

  • Practice social distancing, which means avoiding close contact with people in order to avoid catching the virus yourself and to avoid passing it on to others.
