Here are things you can do, according to CCHD:

  • Frequently, thoroughly wash your hands and avoid touching your face
  • Use good judgment and analyze the risk of your activities before going out (whether that’s grocery shopping at peak times, going on vacation, or going to a friend’s or family’s gathering)
  • Get some physical activity and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, but watch out for trailheads or parks that are already crowded
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces regularly
  • Avoid close contact with people outside of your household (close contact is being within six feet of someone for 15 minutes or more)
  • Stay in contact with your friends and family, even if you aren’t seeing them in person as much as you’d like
