Masks

Wear a mask when you’re in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. When selecting a mask, you have many choices.

Avoid masks that are made of materials that make it too hard to breathe. Also avoid masks with valves or vents that allow virus particles to escape and masks that should be saved for healthcare workers.

Wear cloth masks with two or more layers to help protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Regular handwashing is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • If soap and water aren’t available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth until after you wash your hands.

What to do if you’re sick

Do you think you may have COVID-19? If you think you’re sick, follow guidance about when to call your doctor:

  • Monitor your symptoms

  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor

  • Avoid close contact with others when you’re out

Most people who get COVID-19 can take care of themselves at home. If you need to see a doctor, take precautions to protect yourself and others around you. See more: cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html

Contact tracing

If you have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, a public health worker may call to let you know you’ve been exposed and ask you to stay at home and self-quarantine. Doing so keeps you, your family, and your community safe.
