Given common health risks we routinely face (viruses, the flu etc.) TBH already has several policies and guidelines in place to help prevent the spread of illness.

What can you do?
Use the following precautions to reduce the potential spread of disease:
- Encourage family members to clean hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
- Cover hands and nose with a tissue or a sleeve – not hands – when coughing or sneezing
- Avoid contact with sick individuals and practice proper hygiene at all times
- When a family member is showing symptoms of illness, keep them home and care for them and yourself, and notify TBH of any important updates concerning your family’s condition
