Many ways to reduce spread of COVID-19

Public health officials continue to call on residents to work together to limit COVID-19 related disruptions in the community, particularly in schools where students who test positive miss out on in-person instruction if quarantined. Layering proven COVID-19 mitigation strategies is the key to ensuring that kids stay in school. As the highly contagious virus continues to spread, the following recommendations can help limit the number of new cases in the community:

  • Get vaccinated
  • Limit high-risk exposures
  • Test at the sign of any symptom
  • Quarantine and isolate when necessary
  • Wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor settings
  • Maintain social distance
  • Willingly participate in contact tracing
  • Work in distinct groups or from home to limit exposures
  • Increase air flow and ventilation in shared spaces
