What can people do to prevent a COVID-19 (2019 novel coronavirus) infection?

The best way to prevent or decrease your risk of COVID-19 infection is to avoid contacting infected people and the places they have visited. Infected people can help minimize the chance of infecting other people by strict quarantine procedures that keep the infection isolated from others.
Currently, there is no vaccine available to prevent infection. Also, there is no antiviral drug available to prevent or treat infection.
Some individuals suggest that taking zinc and/or vitamin C tablets help, but such data for preventing COVID-19 is lacking.

The CDC has specific recommendations for COVID-19 prevention that it constantly updates. The following is modified from the CDC (as of March 11, 2020). Remind everyone in your household of the importance of practicing everyday preventive actions that can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses:

• Avoid close contact with sick people; distance yourself 6 feet or more from other people (also termed social distancing).

• Stay home when sick, except to get medical care.

• Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Cough and sneeze into your elbow if you can\’t cover with a tissue.

• Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily (for example, tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles) using a regular household detergent and water.

If surfaces are dirty, clean them first by using a detergent and water prior to disinfection.
Depending on the surface type and environmental conditions, COVID-19 virus survives on surfaces for many hours.
For disinfection, a list of products with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved (EPA-registered household disinfectants) emerging viral pathogens claims is available at Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fighting Products.

Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom, prior to eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. Immediately throw away used tissues. If soap and water are unavailable, use a hand sanitizer that has approximately 60% alcohol.

Make plans about how you will address the issues of child care, school closings, working from home, travel, and other daily life demands so you will be able to cope with these significant disruptions in your lifestyle.
