World Health Organization (WHO)

WHO is a trusted, authoritative source for public health information.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades 

The CDC is our nation’s premier authority on public health information. 

The CDC offers the following everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.

We recommend that individuals and families take these precautions for their health.
