*** CORONAVIRUS-COVID-19 ***

CORONAVIRUS-COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.  At this time the CDC is unclear on how easily the virus is transmitted. 

There are simple everyday precautions, similar to those for the flu, that you can take to prevent you or your family from getting sick.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
