COVID-19 Stay Safe

COVID-19 Prevention

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw out the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a cleaning spray or wipe
  • CDC does recommend wearing a mask if you are not sick
  • Masks should be worn by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to prevent spreading
  • Wash your hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds
  • Wash your hands especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

COVID-19 Virus Spreading for person-to-person

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6ft)
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes
  • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest)
  • Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms, with this new coronavirus
  • It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then by touching their mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. (Not main way virus spreads)
