Staying healthy while your family stays at home:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Clean AND disinfect “high touch” surfaces every day. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If you get outside for a walk in your neighborhood, use a cloth face covering and stay at least six feet away from your neighbors.
  • And when you come back inside, don’t forget to wash your hands!



Practice Social Distancing:

  • The key to slowing the spread of COVID-19 is to limit contact as much as possible. While school is out, children should not have in-person playdates with children from other households. If children are playing outside their own homes, it is essential that they remain 6 feet from anyone who is not in their own household.
  • To help children maintain social connections while social distancing, help your children have supervised phone calls or video chats with their friends. For more information, visit CDC’s “Caring for Children” site.
