Use a handkerchief to place over your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing;
Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth with uncleaned hands;
Air out your home environment;

it is not necessary to suspend breastfeeding, the virus is not transmitted by breast milk;
remembering the mode of transmission, be careful not to cough or sneeze near the newborn and make use of protective mask;
if the mother is very debilitated, the father can use a breast pump to extract the milk and give it to the baby

if the newborn becomes ill:

the sick infant needs more fluids than the well condition, breast milk is the best fluid that can be given;
if the newborn is so debilitated that he/she is unable to latch on effectively to the breast, a breast pump can be used to extract breast milk and administer it to the newborn with a feeding bottle
