How to Prevent Infection

The best way to avoid getting sick is to stay away from people who are known to be infected, frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, refrain from touching your face (eyes, mouth and nose), and wash all common touch surfaces with soap or disinfectant.

What if I Think I’m Infected?
