You can help by limiting the spread of germs and infection:

  • Create an emergency contact list of family members, friends, neighbors, health care providers, teachers, employers and others.
  • Identify community organizations that may be able to help if you need information, health care services, support or other resources.
  • Keep a room, and a bathroom if possible, in your home that could be used to separate family members who become sick.
  • Plan for child care in case schools close temporarily.
  • Ask employers about their preparedness plans, including sick leave and options to work remotely.
  • Learn the preparedness plans of your children’s child care facilities, schools and colleges.
