To continue to keep yourself healthy and well, follow these tips:

  1. Wear a facial covering at all times when you leave your residence.
  2. Please remember to maintain (6 feet) physical distance from others whenever possible.
  3. Stay home if you are feeling unwell. If you are not feeling better after 24 hours, seek medical guidance.
  4. Use good hand hygiene: Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  5. Limit the spread of germs and illness: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow. Avoid sharing food, drinks, utensils, cups, vapes/JUULs, etc.
