How can custodial and health care workers stay protected?

CDCR/CCHCS staff should ensure they are adhering to established infection control policies and procedures already in place to protect against the spread of communicable diseases in our institutions. The California Department of Public Health reminds everyone that precautions you take when trying to avoid getting the flu are no different from what people should be doing every day to avoid the coronavirus and other respiratory diseases:

  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze
  • And when you’re sick, stay home from work or school
