Tips for Protecting Yourself & Others


While there is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus, proactive steps around hygiene and physical distancing can prevent the spread of the disease. For more information, see the Centers for Disease Control, Oklahoma State Department of Health, and the Tulsa Health Department.

NOTE: Presenting to a hospital when a flu-like illness is mild will cause an over demand on available resources and may expose other patients to COVID-19 who do not yet have the virus. You are safer at home unless your respiratory symptoms worsen and your breathing is impaired.  


Stay Home


Stay Home if You're Sick

Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others. Contact your medical provider for next steps and guidance.


Sneezes and Coughs


Cover Your Coughs and Sneezes

Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.


Wash Your Hands


Wash Your Hands Often

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.


Touching Face


Avoid Touching Your Face

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.


Social Distance


Practice Physical Distancing

Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people. Maintain at least six feet distance between yourself and others around you.




Clean and Disinfect Often
