Preventative activities Alaskans can practice every day:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you don’t have soap and water.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue you throw away after use or the inside of your elbow if you don’t have a tissue handy.
- Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose and eyes.
- If you begin to feel ill, stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
- If you have to go to the doctor, call ahead and make an appointment. This helps the provider’s office take steps to keep other people from being exposed.
- Routinely clean frequently-touched surfaces and objects.
