The most important measure is to stay at home and self-isolate if you have a cough or fever. Do not go to work, as you risk spreading the virus. If you have difficulty smelling or tasting, consult your healthcare provider about self-quarantining and staying home from work. It’s important to note that if you can still smell and taste, this does not mean you are not infected.
If you are healthy and are required to return to work, keep at least 6 feet of space between yourself and others whenever possible. Wear a face covering whenever possible, wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water, and keep hand sanitizer containing either 70% isopropyl alcohol or 60% ethanol alcohol nearby for you and anyone stopping by your office.
Use disinfectants to regularly wipe down high touch surfaces and objects such as desks, counters, keyboards, and phones.
If you need to cough, cough into your elbow, and not into your hands.
