– If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your work schedule.

– Avoid eating or drinking in bars, restaurants, and food courts – use drive-thru, pickup or delivery options.
– Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits.
– Do not visit nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance.
– Practice good hygiene:
– School operations can accelerate the speed of the coronavirus. Governors of states with evidence of community transmission should close schools in affected and surrounding areas. Governors should close schools in communities that are near areas of community transmission, even if those areas are in neighboring states. In addition, state and local officials should close schools where coronavirus has been identified in the population associated with the school. States and localities that close schools need to address childcare needs of critical responders, as well as the nutritional needs of children.
– Older people are particularly at risk from the coronavirus. All states should follow federal guidance and halt social visits to nursing homes and retirement and long-term care facilities.
– In states with evidence of community transmission, bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms and other indoor and outdoor venues where groups of people congregate should be closed.
