    Prevention

    2020欧洲杯体育投注网址Important steps you can take to prevent contracting or spreading viruses include:

    • Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve while coughing or sneezing
    • Washing your hands with soap and water often and for at least 20 seconds
    • Using an alcohol-based sanitizer on hands if soap and water are not available
    • Avoiding touching your face
    • Limiting casual physical contact, such as handshakes and hugs
    • Not sharing foods, utensils, e-cigarettes, etc.
    • Cleaning commonly touched objects and surfaces regularly
    • Staying home from class or work if you are symptomatic

    If You Think You Have Been Exposed to COVID-19

    If you are experiencing symptoms following possible exposure to COVID-19, seek medical care as soon as possible. Remember to call ahead and tell the healthcare provider's office about your recent travel, symptoms, and concerns. Please also avoid contact with others and do not travel unnecessarily.

    Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath

Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of contracting the flu and mitigate its symptoms, recover faster, and curtail its spread. If you have not received a flu shot, please do so soon.
