  • Wear a cloth face covering when in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Stay at home as much as possible. People over 65 years of age or whose health is at risk should remain at home unless absolutely necessary.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
