Protect Yourself & Your Family

Stay 6 feet apart

Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you. Also, avoid crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.

Get tested

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, have traveled, attended large social/mass gatherings or been in crowded indoor settings, or have been referred to get testing by your healthcare provider or local health department.
