Actions you can take

We recommend taking action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if staff members or students are not experiencing symptoms:

Wear a mask – Covering your nose and mouth while in public places or if people who do not live with you must visit your home.

Practice Social Distancing –  Maintain 6 ft distance from other people

Practice Frequent Handwashing – using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol

Follow Capacity restrictions at gatherings

Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or inside your elbow

Stay home if you are sick and get tested

Answer the phone if the health department contacts you, as a contact tracer may be trying to reach you.
