  • Keeping our distance from one another — This is something that is being done around the world by doing things like frequent hand washing, maintaining a reasonable distance from one another, and by wearing masks or other face coverings.
  • Isolating those who have an active infection — This means keeping those who are currently infected, whether they are in a hospital or not, away from others, including family members.
  • Quarantining those who have been exposed — This means identifying anyone who has been exposed to someone who is either showing symptoms or who is highly infectious and having them stay away from other people until either that exposed person shows symptoms or until it is reasonably certain that the person is not infected.
  • Identify people who may have been exposed to the disease,
  • Check to see if that person is showing signs of illness, and
  • Providing information and other resources to help that person deal with their situation.
