COVID-19 cases and deaths are rising across the United States. We all must remain vigilant. The changes we have had to make to routines and daily life are extremely hard, but these changes are even more important now and in the future. We must stop the spread of this new and dangerous virus. The more steps you and your family can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the safer you will be.
Three Important Ways to Slow the Spread
Wear a MASK to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.
WATCH YOUR DISTNACE (STAY 6FEET APART) from others who don’t live with you, and avoid crowds.
Avoid indoor spaces as much as possible, particularly ones that aren’t well ventilated.
WASH YOUR HANDS with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

WEAR A MASK BECAUSE………
Are you at Risk of Getting Very Sick?
People of any age can get COVID-19, even healthy young adults and children.
People who are older or have certain underlining medical conditions are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19.
Other Groups may be at higher risk for getting COVID-19 or having more severe illness.
What to Do If You’re Sick
Stay home except to get medical care. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and recover at home without medical care.
Isolate yourself from other members of your family to prevent spread to them and the people that they may have contact with, like grandparents.
If you have to leave isolation, wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart from others, wash your hands frequently, and clean all touched surfaces. Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others.
Be sure that you protect everyone as though they are the most fragile person in your family.
Get care immediately if you are having emergency warning signs, like trouble breathing, pain or pressure in chest.
What Symptoms to Watch For
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:
- Muscle or body aches
- Loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
If someone has trouble breathing, chest pain or pressure, or difficulty staying awake, get medical care immediately.
How to Get a Test for Current Infection
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to call, call your healthcare provider first.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and choose to not get tested, it is important to stay home.
