- Follow the CDC on social media at:
PreventionFollow these guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These actions don't just protect you; they protect others, too:
- The CDC recommends all people 2 years of age and older wear a mask when in public settings and when around people who don't live in your household. Masks should cover your mouth and nose.
- See the CDC guidance for face masks
- Keep surgical masks and N-95 respirators available for those who need them. Those critical supplies are reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by the CDC.
- The CDC does not recommend the use of face shields as a substitute for face masks. Face shields are used primarily for eye protection for the person wearing it. At this time, it is not known what level of protection a face shield provides to people nearby from the spray of respiratory droplets from the wearer.
- See CDC information about face shields
- Practice social distancing, in addition to wearing a mask, if you must go out.
- Wash your hands using soap and water for at least 20 seconds (especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing).
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If a tissue is not available, cough into your elbow.
Social Distancing Applies to Everyone
The best way to prevent the spread of illness is to avoid being exposed or spreading it to others.
Examples of social distancing:
- Stay home.
- Keep a distance of AT LEAST six feet between yourself and others.
- Eliminate unnecessary outings in public spaces.
- Reduce the frequency of important trips outside the home. For example, get groceries once per week, rather than three times a week.
- Conduct business and communications with those outside your home with virtual meetings, by phone, email, or mail when possible.
- Use curbside pickup, when available.
- Do not bring other members of your household on errands and shopping trips unless necessary.
