We also want to emphasize the use of face coverings, as mandated by the Governor’s office, be worn at all times when unable to socially distance from others (at least 6 feet or more). Other prevention practices effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19 include:
• Wash hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
• Wipe down surfaces regularly;
• Do not congregate in close proximity (less than 6 feet of distance) in groups of people other than those who you are typically in close contact with (i.e. family);
• Wear face coverings when out in public and not able to maintain social distancing;
• Stay home when ill;
• Get tested.
