We can all take action to prevent COVID-19, monkeypox (MPV), and other communicable disease outbreaks in our community:
- Stay home when you feel sick. See a health care provider and/or get tested as needed.
- Wear a mask. Masking during indoor, group activities is strongly encouraged. Our COVID-19 Dashboard and COVID-19 Mitigation Action Plan will help us determine if masks become strongly recommended or required throughout the fall. Additionally, viruses such as cold and flu can be spread through respiratory droplets (when someone coughs or sneezes). Wearing a mask can reduce exposure to respiratory droplets, and protect others.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Learn about risks and prevention strategies.
