Preventing Spread of COVID-19
COVID-19 is a virus and is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with each other, which means being within 6 feet of others for at least 15 minutes.
Through respiratory droplets produced when someone infected with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly can be inhaled.
COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not currently showing symptoms.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Some people infected with COVID-19 have mild sypmtoms or do not show symptoms.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we encourage you to talk to your health care provider about being tested.
You can take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by doing the following things:
When you are out, keep a distance of 6 feet or more between you and others.
Wear a face covering in public spaces, when you cannot maintain 6 feet distance from people not from your household.
Limit social gatherings.
Stay closer to home.
Wash your hands with soap and water, often.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
If you are sick, stay home and avoid close contact with others.
Avoid contact with people who are sick.
If you are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, we encourage you to limit activities that put you into contact with people outside your household.
