Practice Proper Cough and Sneeze Etiquette

Proper cough and sneeze etiquette is an infection control measure designed to limit the transmission of respiratory diseases through saliva and mucous droplets and aerosol. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, proper cough and sneeze etiquette has become that much more important. Covering coughs and sneezes and keeping hands clean can help prevent the spread of serious respiratory illnesses like influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), whooping cough, and COVID-19.

Consult your doctor for more information about proper infection control measures.
