HOW WE GET THERE 

Wearing a mask + social distancing. 

By wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart, the fun doesn’t have to stop. These two actions drastically reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. And when you do it, others are more likely to follow suit.

Getting a test if you have symptoms.

Don’t put your friends and family at risk. If you have any symptoms at all, get tested. You’ll just want to stay at home until you get your results, so you do not to risk infecting anyone. Find a testing location. >>

Isolating. 

If you test positive, try to remain calm. Just make sure you stay away from everyone else for 14 days. This means not sharing items like utensils or electronics, and separating yourself from roommates or whoever you live with. Be in touch with your doctor if you feel really bad or start feeling worse.  

Contact tracing.

If you receive a call from the health department, don’t panic. This just means you may have been near someone who has COVID-19. Just listen and answer their questions – make sure to call back if you miss the call – and you’ll learn exactly what to do next.
