  1. Wear Surgical Masks and/or N95 Masks
    Surgical masks offer limited protection, while N95 offer more protection. When in infected regions properly fit these respirators around the nose, cheeks and chin, avoid breathing around the edges .
  2. Wash Hands
    Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  3. Avoid Raw Meat
    Cooking an infected animal until the meat reaches about 150 degrees Fahrenheit (65.5 C) inactivates the coronavirus.
  4. Avoid Public Places
    Limited going to public places such as hospitals or markets.
  5. Cancel Travel to Infection Regions
    Avoid going to Wuhan, China or other affected areas.
  6. Get the Flu Shot
    Stay Healthy. Experts are still recommending that people get vaccinated against influenza if they haven’t yet, since the likelihood of getting the flu in the is far higher than contracting coronavirus.
