Stay home if you are sick
If you should develop a fever, or symptoms such as a cough or difficulty breathing call your doctor for medical advice and guidance before visiting their office. Don't return to work until the criteria to discontinue home isolation are met, after talking to your doctor.

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures are hard to maintain. Wearing a cloth face covering could prevent people who don't know they have the virus from transmitting it to others.
How to limit contact
Tell the passenger to sit in the back.
Avoid close contact with passengers, when possible.
