  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, or cough and sneeze into your upper sleeve. Dispose of tissues in no-touch trash receptacles.
  • Wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
  • Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with coworkers and customers.
  • Avoid shaking hands and always wash your hands after physical contact with others.
  • Keep frequently touched common surfaces (for example, telephones, computer equipment, etc.) clean.
  • Try not to use other workers’ phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment.
