Because this virus spreads so easily – we all need to do our part to slow and reduce the spread. This means practicing all of the public health measures:

  • Follow the Stay-At-Home Order

  • Stay home as much as possible and limit close contact (no masks and closer than 2m) to your own household (the people you live with)

  • Practice physical distancing – stay 2 meters (6 feet) away from people in public areas

  • Wear a face covering: Minimum of 2 layers of material; 3 will provide further protection when you cannot stay 6 feet away from people out in public – and in indoor public spaces as required

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer after being in touch with others or handling anything from outside your home

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands

  • Do not share personal items that come into contact with saliva such as toothbrushes, eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, and towels
