1. Get Vaccinated
Accredited COVID-19 inoculations can help someone safeguard themselves from COVID-19. One should immediately obtain a COVID-19 injection. After someone has received all the immunizations, they may begin doing activities they have stopped doing due to the pandemic.
2. Wear a mask
To be safe vaccinated and non-vaccinated, persons should wear masks in public and indoor places. In general, one does not have to wear a mask outdoors. When in areas with a high number of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor environments and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
3. Keep a safe distance of 6 feet away from others
Inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
Outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
Remember that some people without symptoms may spread the virus.
Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other people.
4. Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces
Being in crowds, such as restaurants, bars, fitness centers or movie theaters, puts you at a higher risk of COVID-19.
Avoid indoor spaces that do not provide fresh air from the outdoors as much as possible.
If possible, bring fresh air indoors by opening windows and doors.
5. Wash your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you were in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
It’s especially important to wash hands:
After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
After caring for someone who is ill
After changing a diaper
After handling your mask
After leaving a public place
After the use of the bathroom
After touching animals or pets
Before eating or preparing food
Before touching your face
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand disinfectant that contains at least 70% alcohol. Cover all the surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
6. Cover coughs and sneezes
If you are wearing a mask:
You can cough or sneeze into your mask. Put on a new, clean mask as soon as possible, and wash your hands.
If you are not wearing a mask:
Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
7. Clean and disinfect
Clean high-touch surfaces every day. These include tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
If someone is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect surfaces frequently touched.
Use a household disinfectant from the EPA's List: Disinfectants for Coronavirus (COVID-19) external icon according to manufacturer's labeled instructions.
If the surfaces are dirty, clean them with detergent, soap, and water before disinfecting them.
Monitor your health daily
Be vigilant and stay alert for symptoms. Keep an eye on fever, cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of COVID-19.
It is particularly important if you are running essential errands, going to the office or workplace, and in environments where it may be difficult to maintain a physical distance of 6 feet.
Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
Follow CDC recommendations if symptoms develop.
