Our best defense against COVID-19 is washing our hands frequently; avoiding touching our eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; wearing a cloth face covering in public; avoiding being around sick people; and physically distancing by staying at home.

NEW! Cloth face covers are recommended when individuals must leave the home to conduct essential activities, when sick, and for those who have seasonal allergies.
