Protect Yourself and Others - Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
As a respiratory illness, the best method to protect yourself against COVID-19 is to practice everyday preventive actions including:
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Maintain safe food practices and avoid sharing cups, glasses, dishes or cutlery
- Clean high-touch surfaces and objects frequently
- Stay home if you are sick or with even the mildest cold- or flu-like symptoms
- Self-test with a rapid antigen test, available for free at many locations
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Wear your best mask whenever you are outside your home or when meeting friends and family you know to be at high risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes
Get vaccinated, including your third/booster dose as soon as you are eligible
