Wash hands as needed with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members. Keep personal physical distance to respect others around you. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other those you don't know.  Don't linger in crowds. Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when you are exposed to an upper respiratory infection to prevent spread of any viruses or bacteria to others.
If you have a weak immunity. You should wear a mask in public to respect others in public venues if it is necessary. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. Do NOT use a face mask meant for a healthcare worker. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always 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. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

If you get symptoms, protect your family. Be proactive, drink lots of lemon, ginger and honey.  Dr. Akee, May 13, 2020
