It's important to note, cloth face coverings are not a replacement for these evidence-based measures; they are an additional tool that may be used to protect us from exposure to COVID-19 when used properly.  

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

CLOTH FACE COVERINGS

TIPS AND TOOLS


Along with physical distancing and wearing cloth face coverings, 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 for at least seven days and until you are fever-and-symptom-free for 72 hours 
    • 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
  • Plan for the possibility of business disruptions, school closures, and modifications/cancellations of select public events

Stay updated on Travel Health Notices from the CDC to avoid nonessential travel.
