How to protect yourself from COVID-19

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed.

Prevention measures include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill

  • Stay home when you are ill

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands

  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • Practice social distancing - keep 2 meters apart from others

If you have a cough, fever and/or difficulty breathing, contact Telehealth (1-877-797-0000) or your health care provider.


Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.
