Stay informed and in touch

  • Get up-to-date information about local COVID-19 activity from public health officials.
  • Create a list of local organizations you and your household can contact in case you need access to information, healthcare services, support, and resources.
  • Create an emergency contact list including family, friends, neighbors, carpool drivers, healthcare providers, teachers, employers, the local public health department, and other community resources.

Prepare for possible illness

  • Consider members of the household who may have an increased risk for severe illness.
  • Choose a room in your house that can be used to separate sick household members from others.

  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wear a cloth face cover when you go out in public.
