  • Stay indoors if possible.
  • Keep doors and windows shut.
  • Avoid strenuous outdoor activities.
  • Keep outdoor activities short, if necessary.
  • Move physical activities indoors or reschedule them.    

The Hoboken Health Department recommends everyone else do the following to reduce exposure:

  • Shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors.
