Protect Yourself and Stop the Spread

The virus is still with us, and we need to remain diligent. It is the responsibility of everyone in order to recover from this as a community. It is important for everyone to continue to take steps to protect themselves and others to stop the spread of COVID-19. Avoid close contact with people who are sick and if you are sick, stay home and get tested. Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home as much as possible–even young people and those who feel well. When you go out, stay at least 6 feet away from others. You must wear a cloth face mask or face covering in public when social distancing (staying 6 feet apart) is not possible, especially on public transport, in stores, on crowded sidewalks, or when working and have direct contact with members of the public. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Community spread case study diagrams from this past summer and fall are examples of how easily COVID-19 can spread from infected individuals, most of whom didn’t even know they were sick yet, to people they know.
