To minimize the risk of illness, here are a few practical things you can do to love your neighbor:
Stay home if you are sick
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
