The CDC provides a variety of tips and prevention practices. These include, but are not limited to:

  • While symptomatic with a fever or any respiratory symptoms, remain isolated in the home and away from others unless it is necessary to see a healthcare provider or for an emergency. This includes avoiding close or physical contact with people or animals.
  • Cover the lesions and avoid public transportation when leaving the home as required for medical care or an emergency.
  • While a rash persists in the absence of a fever or respiratory symptoms, cover all parts of the rash with clothing, gloves and/or bandages.
  • Wear a well-fitting mask to prevent the wearer from spreading respiratory secretions while interacting with others.
