Tips for staying well:
1- frequently wash hands (at this time disinfectant soap and hot water are the best defense against this virus)
2- Stay home if you feel sick
3- Practice social distancing. Maintain a perimeter of 3 feet with any individual. Limit contact including handshakes, high-fives, hugging as much as possible.
4- Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
5- Increase the frequency of cleaning surfaces in your home. The virus appears to adhere to flat surface and may survive up to 24 hours on any surface. A bleach and water solution will work well to clean your household surfaces.
6- Be aware of scammers and those looking to capitalize at this time. You DO NOT need to buy special cleaning products to kill the virus. Nothing exists on the market at this time that has shown to be more effective than bleach. If someone tries to sell you an "anti-CoronaVirus" chemical for cleaning it is likely a scam. You may report any instances of this to the Utah Fraud Hotline 1-800-955-2210
7- Avoid attending group gatherings
8- Avoid any unnecessary travel
9- Visit cdc.gov/coronavirus for the more information and the latest updates on confirmed cases and their locality.
