Best strategies to avoid contracting the new coronavirus
- Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds throughout the day, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, or going to the bathroom.
- If soap and water are unavailable, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and dispose of used tissues immediately.
- Stay home if you can. If you must go out for an essential activity, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others.
What to do if you feel sick
Call ahead before visiting the doctor and stay home except to get medical care. Your doctor or local health care provider will instruct you further. For more information, please visit the CDC website.
Using Steri-Wrap/Halyard 600 - There are many, many patterns out there. Here are 2 patterns (from UF Shands Hospital). These 2 patterns have been found to be as, or more, effective than the N95 mask. They use a double layer of the material (both the white and the blue).
