  • Staying Healthy During Shelter in Place

    There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. 

    Recommendations from the California Department of Public Health:

    • Stay home except for essential needs/activities.
    • Practice physical distancing – stay 6 feet away from people.
    • Wear a cloth face mask if you leave home.
    • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow or a tissue. Wash hands afterwards.
    • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home and away from people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
    • If you smoke or vape, consider quitting. Smoking and vaping causes harm to the lungs.
