Coronavirus safety and prevention tips.

Major airports have begun screening passengers for the coronavirus.

While there is still much to learn about the Wuhan outbreak, scientists do know a bit about similar coronaviruses and other respiratory illnesses like influenza.

Below are some Coronavirus safety and prevention tips you can practice from the American Red Cross.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, and countertops.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them – use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

I hope the measures help the spread of coronavirus.
