COVID-19 What to Know

Know How It Spreads

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus
  • The virus is thought to be spread person-to-person, through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks – some carriers may not show symptoms

Wash your Hands Often

  • Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • 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

Note: If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Avoid Close Contact

  • Keep 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household

Cover Nose and Mouth with Mask when Around Others

  • Everyone should wear a mask in public settings, especially when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain
  • The mask is meant to protect other people in case you are infected; you could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick

Cover Coughs and Sneezes

  • Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • Throw used tissues in the trash
