According to Peel Public Health, the best way to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses such as COVID-19 is to:
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with your sleeve.
- Wash your hands with soap and water or with alcohol-based hand rub.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces.
