Back to home


What is the best way to not get infected by COVID-19?

The best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is to stay home as much as possible and stay at least 6 feet away from others who you do not live with.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

If you are coughing, sneeze into a tissue or your elbow (not your hands). If you must leave your home, wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth.
