INDIVIDUAL PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES
The best way you can protect yourself is to practice healthy habits every day and take steps that will protect yourself from being exposed to the spread of respiratory viruses. It is always recommended that people who are ill avoid travel to keep from potentially exposing others to viruses. Please follow the CDC recommendations to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses. Wash your hands often (between fingers and under nails) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
