What can the public do to protect themselves?

  • Wash your hands often and well with soap and water
  • Cover your cough - cough into your elbow to avoid spreading the virus with contaminated hands
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched
  • Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill (see self-isolation requirements here)
  • Individuals with concerns about symptoms should call health Link (811) unless severely ill, in which case you should call 911 and inform the operator that you suspect COVID-19
