HELP SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
Follow the steps below to help keep you and others safe:
- Stay home as much as you can.
- Avoid any non-essential travel.
- Avoid going for any social gatherings.
- Practice social distancing and keep at least 6 feet or about two arm lengths distance from others in public.
- You can still stay connected with your loved ones through video and phone calls, texts, and social media.
- Avoid close contact with unwell people.
- Make it a habit to wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not readily available, rub your hands together using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- You should always clean and disinfect household surfaces and high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, etc.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue while coughing and sneezing and then throw it in a trash. If you don’t have a tissue, then use your elbow, not hands, to serve the purposes.
WEAR A CLOTH FACE COVER
The CDC has recommended that whenever you are out in public, wear a cloth face cover. For example, whether you are going to the grocery store or buy other necessary things. You also need to keep a physical distance of about 6 feet between yourself and others. Your cloth face cover cannot be a substitute for social distancing.
In case you are infected, then use a cloth face cover so that other people may not get infected from you. You should not use a facemask worn by a health care worker.
You don’t have to place cloth face coverings for young children below 2, people who have breathing problems, or who cannot remove the mask without assistance.
