Here’s a list of some common tips to protect yourself and others:
1. Take care of yourself:

Avoid people who are sick, and of course, stay home if you are sick.
2. Stay informed:
3. Find safer alternatives:
We live very connected lives and almost any product or service can be had either by delivery or virtually.
