  • Prevention is it

From the Northwestern Health Unit:
To prevent any viral illness, including COVID-19:
✅​Wash your hands often with soap and water or 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
✅Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
✅Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
✅Practice physical distancing​
✅Be prepared!​
✅Using a non-medical mask in public can help to slow the spread of COVID-19. Learn how to wear one properly​.
