Households, communities, and workplaces are all central to the national effort to contain the spread
of COVID-19. By maintaining adherence to the infection prevention and control guidelines in all
these various spheres, it is possible for the transmission of the virus to be interrupted. It is possible,
by consistently maintaining the measures, even when in the most familiar and comfortable of places,
the risk of exposure to the virus will be reduced. We ask all to minimize their movements, avoid
social gatherings, and other activities which lend themselves to a greater risk of exposure to the
virus. Continue daily practicing the guidelines which include:
– wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
when handwashing is not possible
– wear a mask every time you are in public
– maintain a separation of six feet from others which is about two arm’s length apart
– seek medical care if experiencing respiratory symptoms which include fever, cough,
shortness of breath, sore throat
– avoid contact with people who are experiencing respiratory symptoms

All these practices, when done together, will significantly reduce the likelihood of being
infected with or transmitting the virus.
