ECDHD will continue to provide updates as they become available.
As a reminder, here are a few things anyone can do to protect themselves from COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses:
• Avoid close contact with sick people and stay home if you are sick.
• Wash your hands often, using soap and water, for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
• When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with your elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
