Wash your hands thoroughly and often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, after touching frequently used items or surfaces or after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or removing a face mask.
If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, covering all surfaces of hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry.
