The Town of Corte Madera is monitoring and coordinating with the Marin County Health Department. The novel coronavirus is a member of the same family of viruses that causes common colds. Treatment is similar to that for other viral infections. Marin County Public Health encourages everyone to emphasize good hygiene to reduce the risk of infection with a respiratory virus, including Coronavirus. Thus, please incorporate the following practices:
- Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds
- When soap and hot water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Cover your cough or sneeze with the crook of your arm, not your hands
- Avoid touching your face, including the inside of your nose
- Stay home from work or school if you are sick
- Get your flu shot to protect against flu
