There are things we can all do to protect ourselves and the people around us from getting or spreading COVID-19.
Pinal County Public Health continues to encourage the community to wear face coverings to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Please keep in mind people may not be showing any symptoms. Wearing face coverings, staying 6 feet away from others, and frequently washing hands remains the best way to protect others and yourself.
These simple actions will lessen your chances of catching COVID-19 and spreading it to others:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
