Dr. Will’s 4 Coronavirus prevention tips that work!
- Do Not touch your eyes, nose or mouth the facial mucous membranes (T Zone)
- Handwash/sanitize regularly
- Clean commonly touched surfaces regularly (frequently if active disease is present)
- Follow the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness (henrythehand.org)
