Stop the Spread
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is important to continue taking measures to prevent infection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following:
- Get vaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccine is available for those ages 5 and older. Have questions about the vaccine? We've compiled a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions and plain language fact sheets in a variety of languages. Find a location to get vaccinated.
- Wear a mask in indoor, public settings, as recommended.
- Stay 6 feet away from others.
- Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.
- Test to prevent spread to others.
- Wash your hands often.
- Cover coughs and sneezes.
- Clean and disinfect--especially if someone in your home is sick.
- Monitor your health daily.
