Dear Letha:

Washing hands, clean clothes, and rest is a great start.  Avoid unnecessary crowds such as movie theaters, malls etc... Use an alcohol based solution to keep hands clean after using keyboards, door knobs, etc that are not your own. Cover coughs with your sleeve not your hands.Do your best and you will stay well.
