What You Can Do
Social distancing is still critical to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Keep plenty of distance between yourself and others.
Wearing a mask or face covering can sharply reduce the risk of passing COVID-19 on to others. Wearing a mask is strongly recommended whenever you are in public places with others around you.
Most people spreading COVID-19 do not know they are infected.
Remind others that precautions remain essential, and set an example by your actions.
