Protecting Yourself from COVID-19

You can protect yourself, your family, and your community from COVID-19 by following these safety practices.

  • Get vaccinated. This is the absolute best form of protection for you and your family.
  • Wear a mask when in public indoor spaces.
  • Stay six feet away from others outside of your home.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, especially inside your home.
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, such as crowded restaurants.
  • If indoors, open windows and doors if possible to let in fresh air.
  • Wash your hands often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, countertops, phones, and keyboards.
  • Monitor your health daily. Be alert for new symptoms. Do not go out if you’re feeling unwell.
