There are a number of things you can do everyday to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19. Take the following precautions:
- GET VACCINATED
The greatest way to minimize the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is to be vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines work well to keep you from getting sick. These vaccines are extremely effective in reducing serious disease, hospitalisation, and death.
- WEAR A MASK
Regardless of vaccination status, everyone ages 2 and up should wear a well-fitting mask indoors and in public areas. If you or someone in your household is at increased risk for severe disease or has a weakened immune system, or if someone in your household is not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, wear a mask regardless of the level of community transmission.
- AVOID POOR VENTILATED SPACES
Avoid busy settings and indoor spaces that do not have fresh air from the outdoors. If possible, introduce fresh air into the house by opening windows and doors.
- WASH YOUR HANDS
After being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
