👉 Get Vaccinated! The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to get vaccinated and ensure that if you have not already, see if you are eligible for the booster shot.
👉 Wear a Mask! Everyone over the age of 2 should wear a mask in indoor places and for all activities with others who are not vaccinated. Masks must cover your nose and mouth at all times to be effective. At the current elevated infection rates, the CDC recommends wearing your mask in all public spaces and when close to people outside of your household in OUTDOOR settings too.
👉 Keep your Distance! Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick and if possible maintain 6 feet distance from others. Remember that some people without any symptoms may be able to spread the virus.
👉 If in doubt, get a test! Ask your healthcare provider where the closest testing site is for you. For peace of mind, before family gatherings, you can also buy over-the-counter home test kits from most pharmacies.
👉 Wash, Wash, Wash! Washing your hands often, for 20 seconds or more with soap and water can reduce transmission greatly. This is especially important in public places. When soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
