Advice for Reducing the Chance of Spreading Infection
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. We should also frequently clean “common” surfaces with alcohol based disinfectants.
How Washing Hands Help Protect People
Once contaminated, hands can transfer a virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick. Washing your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water kills viruses that may be on your hands.

As this is a dynamic situation, our guidance is likely to change and we encourage you to access the most up-to-date information from respected organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.
