We encourage visitors to practice good hygiene habits by following these tips from the Center for Disease Control:
Wash your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. It is suggested that a 20-second washing is appropriate.
Maintain social distancing. Stay at least 6 feet from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. The virus enters the body through these three areas.
Practice respiratory hygiene. Cover you mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissues when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care.
