How can I help slow the spread COVID-19?
COVID-19 is mainly spread from person to person through respiratory droplets when an infected individual speaks, coughs or sneezes at close range
The CDC has also warned it may be possible for a person to become infected by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes.
There is currently no vaccine against COVID-19. Here are some things you can do to help fight the spread of COVID-19. The WHO recommends:
• Washing your hands regularly with an alcohol-based sanitizer, or with soap and water.
• Maintaining distance of at least 1 metre (3 feet) between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing
• Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
• Seeking medical care immediately if you are showing symptoms
