Current recommendations (from the Minnesota State Government website and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Stay home if you have cold or flu-like symptoms and avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom or before eating. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
