Take Steps to Reduce Your Risk

  • Wash (or sanitize) your hands often
  • Wear a face mask around others - make sure it fits snugly. For better protection, wear a mask with two or more layers.
  • Carry an extra mask and hand sanitizer when going out in public
  • Stay at least six feet away from people who do not live with you - unless you know they are all fully vaccinated.
  • Increase air flow - go outside, open windows
  • Regularly clean surfaces that are touched often
  • Keep the number of different households you socialize with small
  • Get vaccinated 



The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has put out Guidance for Hosting Halloween Events, dated 9-23-21, and the Guidance for Individuals and Families, dated 10-6-21.

Along with physical distancing and wearing face masks, practice these preventive tips to protect yourself and others.

When you’re sick, stay home and limit contact with others, even for mild illnesses
  • If you are mildly sick:
    • Self-isolate at home and consider being tested for COVID-19  
    • Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen 
    • Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or are pregnant should contact their provider as soon as they are sick
  • If you have questions, please call the clinic or your doctor before going in. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call 2-1-1 for assistance finding support near you.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water is not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Sick people can spread viruses through close contact with others such as hugging, kissing, shaking hands or sharing utensils.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve or elbow (not your hands).

Get your flu vaccine to protect yourself and your family, and reduce the strain on the healthcare system, which may be impacted by COVID-19 concerns.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects. Germs can build up on frequently touched objects such as phones, keyboards, doorknobs, light switches and children's toys. 

Have an ample supply of essentials at home including water, food, hygiene, medications and pet food.
