Protect Yourself & Your Loved Ones From COVID-19
- Keep 6 feet of space between yourself and others when going out in public.
- Wear a homemade mask or cloth face covering when in public.
- Wash your hands often.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Stay home if you are sick.
Since the start of the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance on wearing masks during COVID-19. Here is what you need to know:
- A homemade mask or cloth face covering can prevent your germs from infecting others.
- Wearing a homemade mask or cloth face covering does not protect you from others who may spread the virus and is not a substitute for social distancing.
- Do not use medical-grade masks. These supplies are needed in health care facilities to protect health care workers.
- Disposable masks should be placed in the trash after use.
Watch For Symptoms
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. Not everyone with COVID-19 has all of these symptoms, and some people may not have any symptoms.
