News outlets everywhere are sharing stories about the coronavirus outbreak.

Amid the worry and concern, please use common-sense preventive actions. They include: Stay home if you’re sick, cover coughs and sneezes, clean frequently touched surfaces, and wash your hands often.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. More resources are on the CDC website.

Especially relevant during spring travel: The CDC also has advice for travelers. It includes staying home for 14 days from the time you leave an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of coronavirus.

Additionally, the CDC Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about travelling may be beneficial to those planning spring break travel.
