Coronavirus in humans most commonly spread from an infected individual to others through:

  • Close contact like shaking hands or touching.
  • Through air by respiratory droplets (sneezing or coughing without covering the face).
  • Touching an infected object or surface and then touching your face (nose, eyes, mouth) without washing hands.

To protect yourself, follow these simple steps:

  • Keep away from people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands with water and soap or alcohol-based sanitizer (for a minimum of 20 seconds) on a frequent basis.
  • Maintain physical distancing when outside your home.
