PROTECTING AGAINST COVID-19
 

The best advice for the public to prevent the spread of any virus, including COVID-19, is to:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds — especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If you are sick, stay home and/or seek medical attention from your health care provider. Please call before you arrive, if possible.
  • Avoid touching your eyes and face.
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Disinfect objects such as door handles and other frequently touched surfaces.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and discard the tissue immediately.
  • Wear a cloth face covering when in public.

Why is masking important?  

As society has opened and more people have resumed work, shopping and leisure activities, we have experienced an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

How do we find the balance between economic recovery and public health safety? Nearly all public health experts agree that masking, social distancing and hand hygiene will enable us to find that balance until a vaccine is developed.

Wearing a cloth face covering when in public is especially important because:

  • You could have COVID-19 and not yet know.
  • Masks help contain droplets from the nose and mouth that can spread the virus.
  • Your mask protects others. Their mask protects you.
