Tips to Avoid the Spread of Respiratory Illness The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. However there are everyday actions that should be used to prevent the spread of the disease.
- Avoid close contact with people.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve, but not your hands

To assist providers and the patients they serve in our area during this critical time, Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation has established a COVID-19 Support Fund. Donations will support individuals and families negatively affected by COVID-19, including Hunterdon Healthcare employees. Funds will be used to provide food and other basic needs to those currently struggling as well as assist Hunterdon Healthcare’s efforts to respond to the Coronavirus disease.
