What do I do if someone coughed on me?
If someone has coughed on you and the droplets touch your face or hands, wash immediately. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Find out if the person has any other symptoms of the coronavirus, such as fever, fatigue, body aches. If they do, you may need to reach out to your doctor and potentially self isolate yourself for 14 days to make sure you don't have symptoms of COVID-19. But check with your doctor.
