There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
-Encourage maximum use of telework for employees eligible to do so. This includes allowing telework-eligible employees caring for children because their school or daycare facility has closed to work from home (with conditions).
- Limit all non-mission-essential travel. (See DoD travel guidelines above.)
- Reduce large gatherings and meetings, holding them virtually whenever possible.
