Stay clean: Santitize cutting boards and counters. Clean sinks. Do not cut chicken or other meats on boards that are porous. Let implements dry in air as towels can pass on bacteria, wash your hands after handling raw meats or fish, wash vegetables fastidiously that are meant to be eaten raw. Cook foods to the right temperature.
