Prevention

To minimize the spread of any respiratory virus (including things like the flu/influenza and COVID-19), Health and Community Services recommends the following:

  • Washing your hands often, for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette. Cover your mouth and nose with your arm when coughing and sneezing and immediately dispose of used tissues in the trash.
  • Stay at home if you are sick
