How to Protect Myself From Ebola

How Do I Protect Myself?
Here are a few steps you should take to protect yourself from Ebola:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Use alcohol-based hand rub on your hands if soap and water are not available.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you or your child is sick, limit contact by staying at home to keep from infecting others.

Note: If someone has symptoms of Ebola and possible exposure, that person should limit contact with others and see a health care provider immediately.
