Know how COVID-19 is spread

Prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick

  • You can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet or two
    arm lengths) with a person who has COVID-19. COVID-19 is primarily spread from person to person.
  • You can become infected from respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
  • You may also be able to get it by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
  • Separate yourself from other people and pets in your home.
  • There is no specific treatment for COVID-19, but you can seek medical care to help relieve your symptoms.
  • If you need medical attention, call ahead.

Protect yourself and others from COVID-19

Know your risk for severe illness

  • Stay home as much as possible and avoid close contact with others.
  • Wear a cloth face covering that covers your nose and mouth in public settings.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently
    touched surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

    getting COVID-19.
