Because COVID-19 and the flu are spread by the transmission of tiny droplets containing germs that can contaminate the air and various surfaces, it is extremely important that people who show symptoms stay away from others (including other family members). Make sure to cover coughs and sneezes, wear a face mask when possible, and continue to wash hands frequently with soap and water.
Do NOT place masks/face coverings on children under the age of 2 who may have trouble breathing or unable to remove covering without assistance.
