COVID-19 What Everyone Should Do

Reduce Your Risk and Monitor Your Health

For the health of you, your family, and the community we strongly recommend the following:
  • Wear a mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Wearing masks is an additional public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19. CDC still recommends that you stay at least 6 feet away from other people (social distancing), frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions.
  • Practice good hand washing — 20 seconds with soap and water or alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Practice social distancing — keep 6 feet between you and others.
  • Do not shake hands or hug.
  • Cough into your elbow or into a tissue and discard.
  • Frequently clean high touch surfaces in your home and work place (such as door knobs, countertops, remotes, etc.).
  • Avoid touching railings, door knobs, faucets, etc. in public areas. Use your sleeve or tissue if necessary.
  • Limit travel to essentials—groceries, pharmacy, medical care. Abide by state requirements and follow these CDC guidelines for Running Essential Errands.
  • Minimize contact with others who may be ill or carrying COVID-19, including those in your household.
  • Monitor your health at home and watch for these symptoms:
    • Fever greater than 99.9F or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose

  • Call your provider if you are ill.
