Health Hint: COVID-19

Taking care of your health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Baylor College of Medicine experts have plenty of tips to help you stay healthy. This month’s Health Hint focuses on the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

Handwashing is the first line of defense that we can all do right now to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Practicing social distancing, isolation or taking part in a self-quarantine are also ways to slow the spread of the virus.
