  • 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.

Additionally, with confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Indiana, the ISDH encourages Hoosiers to get information about the virus from credible sources. Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath.
