The virus that causes #COVID19 can be contracted through touching a contaminated surface and then touching the face.

While in public, please avoid touching door handles, stair rails, etc. as much as possible.

Regularly clean all surfaces with soap & water or disinfectants.

To prevent the spread of #COVID19, we all MUST play our part.

DO NOT discriminate against people who are infected or recovered; doing so affects our ability to identify and treat people who need care.

Let us offer our support and #SayNoToStigma.
