What information do I need to know to remain safe?

The Florida Department of Health, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are suggesting some common-sense precautions that you can take that apply to many infectious diseases. The most important is frequent hand washing with soap and water or use of alcohol-based hand rubs (see Prevention & Treatment https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html and Guideline for Hand Hygiene in Health-Care Settings https://www.cdc.gov/handhygiene/). You also should avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands and encourage people around you to cover their nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has provided a summary of facts that can assist in understanding and preparing for Coronoavirus. (Read More...)
