  • Indoor interaction is more risky than outdoor.
  • Avoid group gatherings.
  • Limit the number of others you interact with outside your household.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • When you go out, practice social distancing, wear a face covering, and wash your hands as soon as possible afterward.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel.
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces.
  • Persons over age 65 and those with chronic health conditions that put them at higher risk for severe COVID-19 should continue to stay home as much as possible.
