Health Recommendations

  • People at higher risk of severe illness (60 and older, underlying health conditions or pregnant) should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others.
  • Employers should enact measures that allow people who can work from home to do so. 
  • If organizations can feasibly avoid bringing large groups of people together, consider postponing events and gatherings.
  • Avoid visiting hospitals, long-term care facilities or nursing homes. If you need to go, limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients.
  • Wash your hands well often, cough into a tissue or your elbow, and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
