Stay away from others
Stay in a room by yourself and use a bathroom no one else uses, if you can. Don't have visitors. Don't leave your house unless you need to get medical care.
Wear a mask and keep distance
When you have to be around others, or if you don’t have your own room, wear a mask and have others wear a mask around you. Stay 6 feet away as much as possible.
Keep the air moving
Open windows and doors if it's safe to do so. The virus builds up indoors, so you’ll want to bring in as much fresh air as possible.
If you share a bathroom
- Turn on fans that pull air out of the bathroom
- Open windows
- Wear a mask
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Wipe down anything you touched with a disinfectant
Follow good hygiene
Follow personal hygiene and cleaning tips for staying healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. Do not share utensils, plates, bedding, or other household items, if possible.
If you’re a caregiver
If you cannot stay away from others because you are their caregiver, for example you care for children or the elderly at home, you should wear a well-fitting mask whenever you're around them.
