Take Steps to Prevent Illness

Since there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends protecting yourself by cleaning your hands often and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

You can protect others by:

  • Staying home if you’re sick
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Wearing a facemask in public settings
  • Practicing social distancing (stay at least 6 feet from other people)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting

Please visit the CDC’s page on Steps to Prevent Illness for more information.
