Tips to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Precautionary steps are always key to prevention, which is the best medicine. Therefore, ANCOR urges everyone to follow these precautionary steps from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to mitigate the spread of COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
