Wear your Face Covering Correctly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and is secured under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily

Face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with every day preventive actions and social distancing in public and social settings. COVID-19 cases and deaths have been reported in all 50 states, and the situation is continuously changing.  Because travel increases your chances of getting infected and spreading COVID-19, staying close to home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick. It is recommended that everyone practices physical distancing (stay six feet away from people who are not in your household), practice good hand hygiene, and frequently disinfect surfaces that or touched often.  It is also important to stay home and isolate yourself from other people in your household if you are sick or if you have a pending COVID-19 test; do not attend social gatherings, go to work or travel.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, or vomiting, diarrhea.
