 Stay Home to protect yourself & others from COVID-19

  • If you are sick, stay home to avoid spreading germs.
  • Even if you are not sick, stay home except for essential needs like medical care or grocery shopping.
  • People with health conditions such as lung disease, heart disease, diabetes or a weakened immune system are most at risk for severe illness, and should stay home.
  • The virus can spread through coughs or sneezes, so stay home and keep a 6 foot distance from others. 

Prevent the spread of COVID-19

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or if unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze, and then wash your hands.
  • The virus lives on surfaces like doorknobs, so avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Wear a mask when going to public places such as a doctor's office, grocery store or pharmacy.
