    There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

    Every person has a role to play. So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense:

    • Washing hands with soap and water.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
    • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.
    • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
    • Staying away from other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
    • Following guidance from public health officials.
    • Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
