As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, there are still important ways that you can help stop the spread of COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed, which means to stay home as much as possible.

Other ways to help prevent the spread of this illness include:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water,
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze,
- Use a face-covering or mask when you go out,
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily,
- Call your doctor if you think you’re experiencing symptoms.
