PMC reminds everyone the most effective way to prevent the spread of any communicable disease is to avoid contact with those who are sick, and to stay home if you are sick. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and keep your hands away from your face if possible.
