To continue to control and suppress spread, we must take the fight to the virus, continue to stand together to tackle what is the greatest public health challenge of a generation. We have come so far, but it is not over. It is crucial to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect individuals at increased risk of severe illness, including older adults and people of any age with underlying health conditions. When possible, get a COVID-19 vaccine. Also, take steps to reduce the risk of infection:
- Schedule you and your adult loved ones 16+ for a COVID-19 Vaccine at CoryellHealth.org/Vaccine or call (254) 248-6381
- Avoid close contact (within about 6 feet, or 2 meters) with anyone who is sick or has symptoms.
- Keep distance between yourself and others (within about 6 feet, or 2 meters).
- Avoid crowds and indoor places that have poor ventilation.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water.
- Cover your face with a cloth face mask in public spaces.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw away the used tissue.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Avoid sharing dishes, glasses, bedding and other household items if you’re sick.
- Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces.
- Stay home from work, school and public areas if you’re sick, unless you’re going to get medical care.
