CDC hygiene etiquetteRESPIRATORY ETIQUETTE FROM THE CDC
It is always important to cover coughs and sneezes. To help stop the spread of germs:

• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
• Throw used tissues in the trash
• If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands

Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.


*All practices are subject to change based on expert guidance regarding local conditions.
