There are many ways you can protect yourself, your household, and your community from severe illness from COVID-19.

  • Avoid contact with people who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Stay up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccines
  • Improve ventilation indoors.
  • Consider moving indoor activities to the outdoors.
  • Additional options to reduce risk of exposure include avoiding crowded areas, keeping distance between others and yourself, and wearing a mask or respirator.

If you are exposed to COVID-19, here are some steps that you can take to protect others, regardless of your vaccination status or if you have had a previous infection.

  • Monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 10 full days after being exposed.
  • Get tested 5 full days after being exposed.
  • To reduce risk of spread, a high-quality mask or respirator can be worn while around others indoors during the 10 days after your exposure.

If you have COVID-19, you can spread it to others, even if you do not have symptoms. If you have tested positive consider following these recommendations.

  • Stay home for 5 full days after your symptoms start or the date of your positive test (if you never develop symptoms). You should be fever free for 24 hours and your symptoms improving before ending isolation.
  • To reduce risk of spread, a high-quality mask or respirator can be worn  when indoors around others while symptoms last.
  • Call your health care provider to learn about treatment options.
