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
