  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms and a high fever consider going to your physician or urgent care.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

Let the church know if they develop a cough, high fever, and difficulty breathing. Then, self-quarantine, see a healthcare provider, and advise the church of the results.
