You can help spread the spread of COVID-19 variants
National medical experts say the best way to avoid becoming sick and spreading the COVID-19 virus is to take the following simple steps:
- Avoid large gatherings, especially indoors. If you are holding an event, keep it outdoors, spread apart as much as possible. Consider wearing a well-fitted mask and encourage others to mask up.
- If you gather indoors, make sure the space is well ventilated and practice social distancing. Consider wearing a well-fitted mask and encourage others to mask up.
- Take a COVID-19 rapid home test to ensure you are infection-free before attending gatherings or traveling. Even if you don't display symptoms, you may be infected with the virus.
- Consider people in your circle who may be high-risk. Spreading COVID-19 to the immunocompromised or unvaccinated is more likely to cause serious illness and require hospitalization.
- Obtain a rapid home test kit by calling the Island County COVID Response Call Center at 360-678-2301 or to have free test kits mailed to your home go online to www.sayyescovidhometest.org
- Make sure you and your family members have COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters up to date.
- Wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer when soap and water aren't available.
- Stay home if you are sick.
