Prevent getting sick
CDC distancing

You can take steps to protect yourself and others during a COVID-19 outbreak.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

Everyone should:

• Clean your hands often.

• Avoid close contact.

• Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. Do NOT use a face mask meant for a health-care worker.

• Cover coughs and sneezes.

• Clean and disinfect.
