What can you do to protect yourself?
The most important advice is to limit your travels to just the essentials; food and medications. Keep at least 6 feet away from anyone you encounter outside of your home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face, as the virus enters through the nose, mouth and eyes.
Please Note: The latest information from Vice President Pence is “We are asking anyone who has traveled out of the New York City metropolitan area to anywhere else in the country to self-isolate for 14 days.”
Check here for more important information from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health about protecting yourself and loved ones. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also lists information on preventing the spread of COVID-19
