Other Prevention Strategies
In addition to vaccinations, there are other things you can do:
- Wear a well-constructed and fitted mask. Masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by containing your respiratory particles and prevent or reduce the amount of infectious respiratory particles you inhale.
- Practice social distancing (6 feet distance).
- Stay home if you are unwell or test positive for COVID-19.
- Wash your hands properly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water often.
- Do not shake hands or hug.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, including phones.
- In general, keep your body and immune system in the best possible shape by getting adequate sleep, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and get outside and enjoy some vitamin D from the sunlight.
- If you smoke, vape or use a water pipe it is an especially good time to quit. COVID-19 disrupts the immune system, which is already weakened with smoke.
