Staying Healthy

This page is being continually updated as new information becomes available. We will share local, state and national information as it relates to our community.

Know how it spreads

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Droplets are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Studies have suggested COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

Clean your hands often

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

Limit contact with others as much as possible. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Put distance between yourself and others. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

Wear a cloth face covering

Everyone should wear a cloth face covering in public settings and when around people not living in their household, especially when social distancing is difficult to maintain. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. Continue to keep about six feet between you and other people in case you are infected.

Cover coughs and sneezes

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.
