Massachusetts continues to prepare for the potential outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, that originated in Wuhan, Hubei, China. The risk of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth is low; in contrast, the risk of flu is high.
These simple precautions will help prevent the spread of the flu and other respiratory illnesses:
• Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, using a tissue or the inside of your elbow
• Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water frequently and use hand sanitizer
• If you have a fever or feel sick, stay home and call your healthcare provider
• Get the flu vaccine – it is not too late! Find more information on the flu and where to get a flu vaccine here: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/what-should-i-know-about-flu
