Protect Yourself and Others
As the number of COVID-19 cases increases around the world preventing the spread becomes a way we all can help. COVID-19 is thought to be spread mainly from person-to-person. Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Droplets deposited on surfaces can also be picked up and consumed through touching areas around the mouth, nose and eyes. The CDC and medical professionals recommend wearing a face mask to protect others and yourself by preventing the spread.
