Ways to reduce risk of coronavirus

Here are the 10 Ways to Reduce Risk of Coronavirus.

• Wash hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or hand dryer.

• Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.

• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
