Between people who are in close contact with one another within about 6 feet. Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
COVER YOUR CAUGH
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.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after you have been in a public place, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not 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 close contact with people who are sick
Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
STAY HOME WHEN SICK
Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
Call your health care provider or County Health Department at 954-412-7300 if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
If you are NOT sick, you do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick. Facemasks may be in short supply and should be saved for caregivers. If you are sick, wear a facemask around other people. Otherwise, cover your coughs and sneezes.
