How can you protect yourself and those you love from this virus? Here are some steps we can all take.

Get Vaccinated

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to you.

Wear a Mask

  • Everyone two years and older should wear a mask in public.
  • Masks should be worn, in addition to staying at least six feet apart, especially around people who don’t live with you.
  • If someone in your household is infected, people in the household should take precautions, including wearing masks, to avoid spreading it to others.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.
  • Wear your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
  • Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.
  • If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you need to find a different mask type or brand.
  • Make sure you can breathe easily.

Stay Six Feet Away from Others

  • Inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If possible, maintain six feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
  • Outside your home: Put six feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
  • Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.

Avoid Crowds and Poorly Ventilated Spaces

  • Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or movie theaters puts you at higher risk for COVID-19.
  • As much as possible, avoid indoor spaces that do not offer fresh air from the outdoors.
  • If indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible.

 Wash Your Hands Often

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • It’s especially important to wash:
    • Before eating or preparing food
    • Before touching your face
    • After using the restroom
    • After leaving a public place
    • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
    • After handling your mask
    • After changing a diaper
    • After caring for someone sick
    • After touching animals or pets
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Cover Coughs and Sneezes

  • Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

 Clean and Disinfect

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Then, use a household disinfectant. 

Monitor Your Health Daily

  • Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath and other symptoms.  
  • Take your temperature if symptoms develop. Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
  • Monitor your oxygen level using a pulse oximeter. A reading of 97% or higher is considered healthy.
