CoronaVirus Prevention

As a former New Yorker I am a fan of everything Cuomo. I receive Governor Andrew’s email monthly and his periodic updates. This morning he sent out simple steps to garnish the spread of COVID-19 and here they are:

Prevention:   There are simple steps we can all take to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses.

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. And let me add if a tissue is unavailable sneeze into your elbow.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, like your cell phone.

New Yorkers can call the Department of Health’s coronavirus hotline at 1-888-364-3065 with any concerns about symptoms or travel. In addition, visit the Department of Health’s dedicated website for more resources and updates about COVID-19.   We expect there to be more positive cases, but rest assured that New York State is taking all necessary actions to contain the potential spread of this virus.   Ever Upward,   Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
