How to Protect Yourself From the Coronavirus
- Wash your hands often.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
- Stay at home if you are sick.
- Stay at least six feet away from others.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze (or use the inside of your elbow).
- Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
- Clean and disinfect all surfaces daily.
- Dilute your household bleach.
- To make a bleach solution, mix:
- 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water OR 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water.
- Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
