Healthy Habits to Help Stop the Spread of Disease

  • Stay at least six feet away from others
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Wash your hands often, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds each time
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth (if you’re medically able) to help protect others in case you’re infected with COVID-19, but don’t have symptoms

How to wear your mask correctly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your mask
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it in place under your chin, behind your ears or the back of your head
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
  • Don’t put the mask around your neck or up on your forehead
  • Don’t touch your mask, and, if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to disinfect
