Prevention Tips

Good hygiene practices are key to staying healthy. Here are some easy ways to help prevent the spread of infectious disease and stay healthy:

  • wash hands frequently for at least 20 second. This CDC guide helps families establish good handwashing practices with their children.
  • avoid touching your eyes/face
  • cough or sneeze into your sleeved elbow
  • stay home when ill
  • According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), face masks are most useful for preventing disease spread when they are worn by people who have symptoms. This is why people are asked to wear a mask at doctors’ offices and hospitals if they are coughing or sneezing.
