COVID-19 SITE SAFETY

Clean your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily 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 touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home as much as possible.
Put six feet of distance between yourself and other people.
Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Stay home if you are ill.

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under the age of 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected but is not a subsitute for social distancing.

Cover coughs and sneezes
If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Through used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not easily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
