What can I do to help prevent developing an infection?

Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds being sure to scrub your nails and between fingers. If water is not available, use of hand sanitizer is acceptable as long as it has at least 70% alcohol.
- Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
