Common Questions

How can I protect myself from COVID-19?

Right now the best protection against COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. If you aren't vaccinated, stay home when possible, wear a mask when you will be in crowded indoor settings, wash your hands, avoid gathering in groups, and keep a distance of at least six feet from other people.
