Social distancing key to limiting exposure to coronavirus

Post Date:03/02/2020 12:34 PM

Help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep yourself, your loved ones and your neighbors safe. Please follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):
  • Observe social distancing guidelines. This means staying home whenever possible, especially if you are a member of a high-risk category for COVID-19 due to age or underlying health conditions. If you must go out, maintain six feet of distance between you and anyone who is not a member of your immediate family.
  • Frequently wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with an alcohol concentration of 60% or above.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw it away. Wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Stay at home if you have a fever or are otherwise unwell. Avoid contact with people who have a fever or are otherwise unwell.
Symptoms of the coronavirus include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.Visit Health and Human Services' dedicated COVID-19 page.
