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.
