Delta Coronavirus Preventive Action

There is currently no vaccine to prevent Covid-19 infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses are recommended, including:

  1. Wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds. Otherwise, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  4. See the doctor and stay at home when you are sick.
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  6. Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

In Thailand and India it is customary to greet others by joining both your palms and offering a small bow or a big smile. This is called WAI in Thailand and NAMASTE in India.
