Avoid Crowded Places (Social Distancing)
As an individual, you can lower your risk of infection by reducing your rate of contact with other people.

Cover Mouth when Coughing
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
Avoid Contact with Animals
Avoid animals (alive or dead), animal markets, and products that come from animals (such as uncooked meat).
