With an infectious virus, people with chronic illness or compromised immune symptoms are at a higher risk. Here is a list of best practices to reduce your risk of infection with COVID-19, coronavirus, or other viral outbreaks. 

WHO’s Protective Plan of Action for Everyone
The World Health Organization recommends the following for everyone in an effort to reduce risk of infection with COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue. Discard the tissue in the trash.
  • Keep at least 1 meter (about 3 feet) of distance between yourself and others, particularly those who are coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands.
  • Practice food safety by using different chopping boards for raw meat and cooked foods, and wash your hands between handling them.

Most important to the whole prevention process is, of course, washing our hands. Many of us think we wash our hands well enough. Here, however, is a video from WHO and infographic that instructs us all to spend 60 seconds properly washing to prevent spread of illness.
