Protect Yourselves and Others

Take these precautions to help prevent the spread of germs:

  • Practice the social distancing guidelines provided by the CDC and your local government.
  • Perform frequent hand hygiene by washing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizers
  • Regularly use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Keep areas clean and disinfected, especially surfaces or items that are touched frequently, like your cell phone or tablet
  • If you're sick, stay home, except to get medical care
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, your sleeve or elbow
  • For mild illnesses, consider using MethodistNow telehealth service from your home, rather than visiting a clinic or emergency department
