  • Updated

There’s no cure and no loopholes to avoid COVID-19. We’re all in this together! The World Health Organization says these are the top five things we can all do to help limit the spread and keep one another healthy:

  • Wash your hands often, for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cough into your elbow.
  • Don’t touch your face.
  • Keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet.
  • Stay home if you can. If you can’t, be extra-vigilant about the first four.
  • Got it? Good. It might feel daunting, but staying healthy during a pandemic is possible — and you can do it without snatching up all the toilet paper at your local store.
