As the COVID‑19 pandemic remains ongoing, you should keep up good preventive habits to lower your risk — especially as flu season is upon us and temperatures drop. Here are some things that may reduce the spread of COVID‑19:
• Follow your state and local government's orders and social distancing recommendations
• Wash your hands often ‑ follow the 20 second rule when washing your hands
• Wear a mask that has two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric that fits over your nose and mouth and fits snugly, especially in public settings. Please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick — maintain 6 feet between you and others who may be sick
• Cover all coughs and sneezes
• Don't touch your eyes, nose or face
• Clean and disinfect surfaces you use often
• Monitor your daily health and contact a health provider for guidance if you feel sick
