A: The best ways to slow the spread of COVID are to:
- Get the COVID-19 vaccine.
- Wear a mask to protect yourself and others, especially in indoor public places.
- Practice physical distancing. Don’t shake hands, avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet away from others, especially if you aren’t vaccinated.
- Wash your hands frequently, especially after coughing, sneezing and visiting public areas. Alcohol-based sanitizers and wipes with at least 60% alcohol are also good options for hand hygiene.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
- Avoid touching your face, especially your mouth, nose and eyes.
- Keep surfaces clean at your home, workplace and school.
Most importantly, if you’re feeling sick or showing signs of an illness, be very cautious about going into public spaces. It’s best to stay home and isolate yourself from others.
A: Masks can be worn safely by most people with no risks. Some exceptions include:
- Children under 2 years of age
- A person with a disability who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, for reasons related to the disability
If you have any concerns about wearing a mask, talk with your healthcare provider.
