Protect your Home from COVID-19

 

As cases of COVID-19 continues to rise, there are steps you can take to limit the spread of the virus in your household.  COVID-19 can spread anywhere, even places where you feel safe, like your home. If someone in your household gets COVID-19, it can spread to others in your home.

 

When leaving your house for work, to run errands, or for any other reason, you have a chance of being exposed to COVID-19 and bringing it back to your home. The chances of being exposed increase when you:

  • Have close contact with other people (closer than 6 feet)
  • Spend more time with other people
  • Spend time in crowds (more than 10 people)
  • Spend time in indoor spaces, particularly if poorly ventilated

 

When around people who don’t live in your home, wear a mask, wash your hands, and stay at least 6 feet apart to protect yourself and prevent bringing COVID-19 into your home.
