Know Your Risk and Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

The more people a person interacts with and for extended amounts of time increases a person’s risk for contracting and spreading COVID-19. This includes attending and hosting social gatherings with extended family and friends.

Activities that take place outdoors that allow for enough room to maintain physical distancing and involve fewer people are lower risk activities than activities that take place indoors that do not allow for physical distancing and involve more people.

Staying with Friends and Family:

Many have opened up their homes to people who were evacuated or lost their homes due to the recent fires. Because this can increase the risk of COVID-19 spreading within these settings, it is essential to take extra steps to stay safe.

  • Everyone should wear a mask inside the home.
  • Follow everyday preventive actions, including covering coughs and sneezes, washing your hands often, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Consider taking extra precautions for people living in close quarters.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched.
  • If anyone develops COVID-19-like symptoms, even if mild symptoms, they should seek testing.

This fall and winter, we must take extra precautions to prevent the spread of flu and COVID-19.

Flu Vaccination

  • Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season, especially people at high risk.

Take these everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs like the flu and COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Limit your contact with others if you are sick
  • Wear a mask
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched
  • Watch your distance
