STAY CALM:There have been a limited number of cases identified so far in Pinal County and Arizona at large. Avoiding widespread panic and fear is essential to limiting the negative effects of a possible outbreak.
TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
INFORMING CHILDREN ABOUT COVID-19:Remain calm and reassuring, remember that children will react to both what you say and how you say it. Avoid language that might blame others and lead to stigma. Remember that viruses can make anyone sick and teach children everyday actions to reduce the spread of germs.
STAY INFORMED:Check government sources such as the CDC website www.cdc.gov or the Arizona Department of Health Services website www.azdhs.gov for accurate and up to date information.
