The CDC recommends that you use reasonable precautions you would employ to prevent cold and the flu in order to maintain your health and prevent the spread of all respiratory conditions, Including:
Washing your hands with soaps and water for at least 20 seconds
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Covering your cough to sneeze with a tissue and then throwing in the trash
