  • Practice proper cough etiquette.
  • Cover mouth and nose using tissue or sleeves/bend of the elbow when coughing or sneezing.
  • Move away from people when coughing.
  • Do not spit.

  • Always wash your hands after sneezing or coughing.
  • Use alcohol/sanitizer.
  • Maintain distance of at least one meter away from individual/s experiencing respiratory symptoms. Avoid unprotected contact with farm or wild animals (alive or dead), animal markets, and products that come from animals (such as uncooked meat).
