Proper Precautions

The Marion County Public Health Department asks us all to:

  • Wash hands using soap and water for 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer should only be used when water and soap are not available.
  • Cover all coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
  • Stay home when you are feeling sick and don’t return until you are symptom-free for 24 hours.
  • Stay away from others who are sick.
  • Limit personal contact, such as hugging or kissing, shaking hands and high-fives.
  • Anyone returning from any travel to Level 2 or Level 3 countries (according to the CDC) should contact the MCPHD for review of quarantine designation. This would include any spring break travel.
