Frequent hand washing by both sick and well people is the key to reducing transmission. Plain soap and water are effective as are the alcohol-based products now on the market. People who are sneezing or coughing should cover their mouths. Diapers and fecal waste should be handled carefully and disposed of properly. Surfaces should be kept clean. Contaminated surfaces should be disinfected using a dilute solution of household bleach (1 tablespoon of bleach to 4 cups of water).
