Currently there is no vaccine for COVID-19. The best measure is to avoid coming in contact with the virus:
• Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains 60-
95% alcohol when water and soap are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with
• Stay home if sick.
• Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that have been
touched (counters, doorknobs, toilets, phones, etc.)• Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing
with a tissue, then immediately dispose of the tissue
and wash hands for at least 20 seconds..
• It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and
CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday
preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs,
and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
• With its new determination, the CDC says it is a very
good practice to wear a mask if you’re in public and/or
working. See FAQs for more info. Source.
Wear a mask
The coronavirus is transmitted from one person to the next via small droplets produced by coughing, sneezing, and talking.
Facemasks aim to prevent the spread of the virus from one person to the next.
You don’t only wear the mask for your own protection. Mask wearing is altruistic too. The research clearly suggests that masks help to reach both of the main goals: They reduce the risk for the wearer to get infected – and they also reduce the risk of the wearer infecting others.
A systematic review and meta-analysis by Chu et al. (2020), published in The Lancet, found that the use of face masks would result in a large reduction of the risk of infection.
Am I required to wear a mask?
On April 3rd, the CDC updated their guidance to
recommend the use of simple cloth face coverings that
cover the nose and mouth to slow the spread of the virus
and help people who may have the virus and do not know
it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings
fashioned from household items or made at home from
common materials at low cost can be used at restaurants
as an additional voluntary public health measure.
Employers may require the use of such face coverings
relying on the CDC guidance (unless there is an
accommodation request which should be addressed on a
case by case basis)
