3. Keep Your Hand Out Of Your Face
Although “stop touch your face” is easier said than done, it must be done. Touching your eyes, mouth, or nose is a clear way to spread germs. To prevent the spread on germs we much avoid touching our face as much as possible.
4. Protect The Sneeze And Cough
To help prevent the spread of germs be mindful when sneezing or coughing. Avoid sneezing or coughing in the air and in your hands. Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue, napkin or using your upper inner sleeve is best.
