Practice Safe Six

We can do this: Practice Safe Six

Our COVID-19 cases are rising rapidly, so we all need to pull together and remember to take measures to slow the spread. 

  • We are hearing from many people who have tested positive with COVID-19 in all three counties that they had recently attended either private or public social gathering. These events appear to be an important source of the current spread of COVID-19.
  • Everyone needs to limit the number of activities they participate in with members outside of their household immediately to help stop the spread.

To protect ourselves, our family, and our community we need to stay at home as much as possible and limit the number of people we have contact with to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We ask everyone to do their part to help slow the spread and Practice Safe Six!

COVID-19 spreads between people who are within 6 feet of each other through respiratory droplets produced when a person with the infection coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets land in the mouth or nose of a person who is nearby or are possibly inhaled into our lungs. By taking these six simple ways to prevent the spread and protect each other, we can help prevent others from getting COVID-19.
