NJ Department of Education Encourages Individuals to Practice Coronavirus Prevention Tips

The New Jersey Department of Education officials encourage you to follow the COVID-19 prevention guidelines provided by the New Jersey Department of Health.

Prevention Tip Number 1: Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or into your sleeve - not your hands. Don't forget to throw away your tissues after use!

Tip Number 2: Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Bonus tip! Remember to wash your hands before you remove your contact lenses, check your makeup, or before you eat.

Prevention Tip Number 3: Wash hands often for at least 20 seconds, especially after coughing or sneezing. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap & water are not available.

Bonus tip: To ensure you're washing your hands for a full 20 seconds, try singing "Happy Birthday" to yourself twice!

These tips were created to ensure the safety of everyone.
