What Individuals Can Do

• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw it in the trash can
• Wash 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
• If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol
• Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also advises to avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands and to avoid close contact with people who are sick.
