Help slow the spread of COVID-19. Stay home if you are sick.

If you use public transit, consider what is feasible, practical, and acceptable for you to help protect yourself and others while slowing the spread of #COVID19. #CDC suggests you stay home when sick; wear cloth face coverings when physical distancing is difficult; and practice hand hygiene after you leave the transit station AND when you arrive at your destination by washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

Heard about contact tracing, but not sure what it is? During the pandemic, public health workers follow up with and interview people who have COVID-19 and their contacts. Contact tracing slows the spread of COVID-19. If you have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, a public health worker may call to let you know you’ve been exposed and ask you to stay at home and self-quarantine. Doing so keeps you, your family, and your community safe. https://bit.ly/COVID-Contact-Tracing. #PublicHealth #COVID19 #ContactTracing #SlowTheSpread #quarantine

Remember to wear a mask when you're out in public, especially in places where it is difficult to social distance.

COVID-19 spreads primarily through close contact with someone who is infected, but it can also spread if you touch contaminated objects and surfaces.

You can protect yourself: clean your hands and your surroundings frequently!

Be mindful of social distancing this Fourth of July weekend. If you choose to go to a park, beach, event or gathering, follow these actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
• Stay at least six feet from others at all times.
• Avoid crowded areas.
• Wear a cloth face covering to protect yourself and others.
• Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to use if soap and water are not available.

Keeping space between you & others is one of the best tools we have to #slowthespread of COVID-19 in communities. Practice social/physical distancing by:
✔️Staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from others.
✔️Staying out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.

Masks help #slowthespread of COVID-19. Masks/face coverings act as simple barriers to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling in the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. https://t.co/UDZjEzgL6j

Getting tested is one way you can stop the stigma. HIV testing is a normal and routine part of health care and knowing your status is important because it helps keep you healthy. #DoingIt #HIVTesting #KnowYourStatus #IGotTested #HIVAwareness

Wear your Face Covering Correctly
-Wash your hands before putting on your face covering.
-Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
-Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face.
-Make sure you can breathe easily.

If you travel, follow these guidelines.

Staying in for dinner is the safer plan!

A new report in CDC’s MMWR looks at COVID-19 infection among pregnant and nonpregnant women. Compared to nonpregnant women, pregnant women are more likely to be hospitalized and are at increased risk for ICU admission and receipt of mechanical ventilation than nonpregnant women, but risk of death is similar.

Pregnant women can take steps to stay healthy and reduce their risk of getting COVID-19:
• Do not skip your prenatal care appointments.
• Limit your interactions with other people as much as possible.
• Take precautions to prevent getting COVID-19 when you do interact with others.
• Make sure that you have at least a 30-day supply of your medicines.
• Talk to your healthcare provider about how to stay healthy and take care of yourself during the COVID-19 pandemic.
• If you don’t have a healthcare provider, contact your nearest community health center or health department.
• Call your healthcare provider if you have any questions related to your health.
• Seek care immediately if you have a medical emergency.
• You may feel increased stress during this pandemic. Fear and anxiety can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions.
