  • Citizens are encouraged to practice recommended hand washing and hygiene protocols and "social distancing." Wash your hands for 20 seconds, cover your cough or sneeze with your arm or using a tissue and then dispose of the tissue. Stay home when you are sick, avoid large gatherings, and maintain physical distance from others in public.
