How this may affect our customers

What you can do:

It is important to stay aware by visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. Here are some every day preventative measures you can follow:

  • Practice Social Distancing.
  • The CDC recommends wearing face coverings (such as a mask, bandana, or scarf) in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. DIY Make your own mask instructions.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick or suspected to be sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
