Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information


Many of the things you do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect you against other respiratory viruses, including COVID-19. The Massachusetts Dept of Public Health recommends the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
