- Make a reasonable effort to limit close contact with others in the residence and family members (as applicable) for example, separate bathrooms as available and sharing of household items, and encourage any family members or personnel in your home to strictly adopt Social Distancing and enhanced personal hygiene measures

- Minimize exposure outside of home (do not go to restaurants, bars, or other social gathering places)

- At all times, try to maintain a six foot separation between yourself and other people outside of your family.

- Clean your hands often; soap/water; avoid touching your face

- If soap is not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol
