  • Stay Home If You Are Sick: Leaving home when you are sick increases the risk of exposing others to illness.
  • Practice Social Distancing: Respiratory illness spreads in close contact. Keep at least 6' (2 arm lengths) of distance from others when in public and avoid large gatherings..
  • Utilize Cloth Face Coverings: Use a clean, well-fitted face covering. Face coverings can help stop the spread of respiratory illness, especially when social distancing is not possible.
