  1. Wear a face covering in public (it only works if you wear it) 
  2. Stay six feet apart from others (it only works if you do it) 
  3. Stay at home when sick (don’t risk getting others sick) 
  4. Avoid in-person gatherings with people who don’t live with you (don’t risk bringing the virus home with you) 
  5. Wash your hands regularly (this is just good sense)
