It is important to take precautions in order to prevent the spread of the virus. The CDC recommends the following basic hygiene and sanitation practices to stop the spread of the virus including:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol‐based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the garbage. If you do not have a tissue, you can use the inside of your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household  cleaning spray or wipe
  • Practice social distancing (6 ft. distance)

We will continue to keep you informed on the situation through our website www.woodbury.nj.us and social media outlets.
