How To Protect Yourself When Going Out
Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others. Masks offer some protection to you and may protect those around you if you are unknowingly infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
Choose a mask with two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric that fits snugly against the sides of your face.
Stay 6 feet apart and avoid crowds.
The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
Avoid indoor spaces as much as possible, particularly ones that aren’t well ventilated.
You may find it harder to stay 6 feet apart in indoor spaces.
Use soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place or hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
What Symptoms To Watch For
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:
Muscle or body aches
Loss of taste or smell
Other symptoms are signs of serious illness. If someone has trouble breathing, chest pain or pressure, or difficulty staying awake, get medical care immediately.
What To Do If You're Sick
Stay home except to get medical care. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and recover at home without medical care.
Isolate yourself from other members of your family to prevent spread to them and the people that they may have contact with, like grandparents.
If you have to leave isolation, wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart from others, wash your hands frequently, and clean all touched surfaces.
Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. Be sure that you protect everyone as though they are the most fragile person in your family.
Get care immediately if you are having emergency warning signs, like trouble breathing, pain or pressure in chest.
