Protecting yourself and your family is important to ensure your safety and well-being. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones:
- Practice good hygiene: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
