As the community continues to respond to the pandemic, it is important for people to follow recommended public health strategies. These include:

Universal Use of Face Masks

The consistent and correct use of face masks in public and around people who do not share the same household. Recent studies estimate that approximately half of new infections are transmitted by people who have no symptoms of COVID-19. New evidence shows that in addition to providing protection for others, face masks also provide some protection to those wearing them.

Social Distancing 

Maintaining social distancing and limiting contacts. Contact with people outside of the household setting increases the risk of infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. Outside of household settings, being in close physical contact with others, sharing meals, being in enclosed spaces, or in large crowds can all increase the risk of infection. Participating in these activities also increases the risk of transmission among household members. 

Hand Washing 

Regular handwashing is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick and prevent the spread of germs to others. To prevent the spread of germs, wash hands with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
