Respiratory illness season

Prevent getting sick and protect others

  • Stay home when feeling sick;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, whenever possible;
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes, then clean your hands;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items at home, especially when someone is sick;
  • Wear a well-fitting mask in crowded indoor spaces to help reduce the risk of becoming sick and to help protect others from being exposed,
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, wear a mask for a total of 10 days from the onset of symptoms (even if the symptoms have resolved or improved) when in indoor settings with other individuals, and
  • Get your flu shot and COVID-19 vaccine.
