How to protect yourself and your family

  1. Check the CDC website for up-to-date information.
  2. Practice good health habits. Everyday actions like handwashing can help to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.
    • Stay home when you’re sick. That includes staying home from work, school, errands and travel.
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when washing isn’t an option.
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a face mask when around others unless you are fully vaccinated.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Put distance between yourself and other people outside of your home.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as phones, keyboards and doorknobs.
    • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
    • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Get plenty of sleep, exercise, drink a lot of fluids and eat nutritious food.
    • Get a flu shot.
