Reminder, the best way to protect yourself and your community is by preventing the spread of germs.

  • Practice social distancing.
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cough and sneeze into your arm and throw out used tissues right away.
  • Clean and disinfect shared surfaces and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
