With the flu season fast approaching it is even more important now than ever to both protect yourself from the spread of viruses and also be mindful of how you can ensure that you will not spread viruses to others.  Please take the following tips from the CDC seriously.  If we all commit to taking these simple steps, we can keep everyone safe and our favorite businesses open. 
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Learn how COVID-19 spreads and practice these actions to help prevent the spread of illness.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should:
  • Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song twice or or the sing the ABC song while washing ) or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
  • The CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19, as well as other viruses, from spreading those viruses on to others.
