There’s no denying changes to daily life are hard and patience may be wearing thin, but we can’t let up. The safety steps you take now will protect you and your family’s health and well-being later.

Actions That Increase Risk:

  • Having close contact (within 6 feet) with other people who don’t live with you
  • Spending time in indoor spaces, particularly if poorly ventilated
  • Spending time in groups or crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.

Actions That Decrease Risk:

  • Getting vaccinated
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands
  • Watch your distance

Protect Your Jobsite:

  • Just wearing a mask is not enough. We still need to continue practicing other protective measures.
  • Be proactive about building a relationship with local public health officials. Ask “What should I do if there is an outbreak on my job?”
  • Look for ways to add more fresh air to the work environment, such as by checking ventilation systems.

Protect Your Home:

  • COVID-19 is highly contagious and can spread in places you feel safe, like your home. If one person in your household gets COVID-19, it can spread to others.
  • What’s a household? Anyone who currently lives under the same roof as you. It could be family members or people who aren’t related to you, like roommates. Close relatives you see often but don’t live with are part of a different household.
  • Be cautious who you spend time with and be aware who other people in your household are spending time with.
