How to Protect Yourself and Others

Follow the 3 W's

 1. WEAR A MASK

  • Wear a mask or cloth face covering when you leave your home,.
  • Wear it anywhere that maintaining social distance is difficult, like the grocery store or office.
  • Make sure your mask covers your mouth and nose.

 2. WASH YOUR HANDS

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • When soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

3. WATCH YOUR DISTANCE

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from people who don't live in your home.
  • Maintain your distance, even when people are wearing masks.
  • Avoid close contact with others, especially people who are sick.
  • Avoid crowds and confined spaces.
  • Stay home when possible - this is still the safest option.
