Health and Well Being

Health and Well Being

  • Basic CDC Preventive Guidance to follow:
    • Wear a mask:
      • Wear a mask in public settings, especially where staying 6 feet apart (about two arm lengths) is not possible. Interacting without wearing a mask increases your risk of getting infected.
      • Wearing a mask does not replace the need to practice social distancing.
      • Wear masks to help keep from getting and spreading COVID-19.
    • Social distance in shared spaces:
      • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you and others. COVID-19 spreads easier between people who are within 6 feet of each other.
      • Keeping distance from other people is especially important for people who are at increased risk for severe illness, such as older adults and those with certain medical conditions.
      • Indoor spaces are riskier than outdoor spaces because it is harder to keep people apart and there’s less ventilation.
    • Wash your hands often:
      • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. If your hands are visibly dirty, use soap and water over hand sanitizer.
      • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth if you haven’t washed your hands.
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes whenever you are not wearing a mask:
      • Remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues into no-touch trash cans and immediately wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
      • If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
    • Self-Check symptoms of COVID-19
      • The primary symptoms of COVID-19 include the following:
        • One of the following symptoms: Fever, uncontrolled cough, or shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
        • Or at least two of these symptoms: Diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, muscle aches, severe headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.
