If you will be staying with friends or family outside your household:

  • Talk to the people you plan to stay with about how you can all best protect yourselves from COVID-19.
  • Consider if either of your households has someone who is at higher risk of developing severe illness from COVID-19, including older adults or people of any age who have underlying medical conditions. Make sure everyone knows what they can do to keep them safe from COVID-19.
  • 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.
  • Know what to do if someone in your family or in the household you are staying with becomes sick with COVID-19.

Protect yourself and others while in a public shelter

  • Practice physical distancing. Stay at least six feet from other people outside of your household.
  • Wear a mask, wash your hands often, cover coughs and sneezes. Avoid sharing food and drink with anyone if possible.

  • Avoid touching high-touch surfaces, such as handrails, as much as possible. Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizers with at least 60 percent alcohol immediately after you touch these surfaces.
  • Keep your living area in the shelter clean and disinfect frequently touched items.
  • If you feel sick when you arrive at the shelter or start to feel sick while sheltering, tell shelter staff immediately.

Overall, all people in Jackson County need to:

  • WEAR a face covering
  • WATCH your distance
