Do The Five:[1]

Frequent handwashingWhen coughing, use your elbow or a tissueDo not touch your faceStay more than 3 feet apart from othersIf you feel sick, stay home.

Limit in-person gatherings to ten people, observing the “Five” rules above [2]Lead by example – Expect 100% adherence to the above, both from yourself and from others.[3],[4]

Remember, stay informed, follow local institutional leadership and guidelines, embrace cooperative and collaborative approaches, embrace technological advances such as point-of-care testing and telemedicine, think critically to avoid medical misinformation, and most importantly do not panic.[5],[6],[7],[8] It takes a team to win this war!
