Staying Safe

Center for Disease Control Recommendations

It is important that you take steps to stay as safe as possible during the pandemic. The CDC recommends that you:

  • Maintain social distancing (6 feet of space between you and another person).
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. Discard the tissue immediately and wash your hands.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • If you are sick, wear a face mask if you are in public or around other people.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces daily. Coronavirus can live on many surfaces for an extended period of time.

NSA strongly suggests that you comply with local shelter-in-place or other social distancing orders.
