How can I prevent getting novel coronavirus?

You can take steps to protect yourself and others during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19. 
  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). 
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Here's how you can do that:
    • Stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people. 
    • Do not gather in groups. 
    • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings. 
    • Disinfect frequently used surfaces. 
    • Avoid touch greetings, like hugs, kisses, etc. 
    • Use mail-order for medications, if possible, and consider a grocery delivery service. Learn about special services offered by grocery stores and pharmacies in Lewiston
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others, including when you have to go out in public.
