*Staying home if you have respiratory symptoms;
*Avoiding shaking hands;
*Practicing hand hygiene (hand washing or use hand sanitizer);
*Not sharing food or drinks;
*Avoiding buffets or potlucks;
*Avoid visiting the vulnerable population (elders and people with chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart/lung conditions, cancer patients, etc.);
*Avoiding social gatherings or outings where a lot of people get together, such as birthday parties, social events, shopping mall, etc.
