What You Can Do to Keep Yourself and Your Community Healthy
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or your upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Discard used tissues immediately.
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer that is 60-90% alcohol-based.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice social distancing. Try to keep an optimal six-foot distance from other people.
  • Stay home if you are not feeling well or experiencing flu-like symptoms. Contact your doctor or call 211.
