Growing Healthy Communities: How To Protect Yourself And Others From COVID-19

COVID-19 has impacted lives globally. The mortality of this disease is alarming, even in the state of Arkansas.

To help reduce risk of infection we must strive to protect ourselves and others. Remember to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, hand sanitizer is also great at keeping hands clean and germ free. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Social distance when with others, and as an additional barrier for protection wear a breathable face mask. Ensure the mask fully covers your nose and mouth, and that it fits securely under your chin, and snugly along the sides of your face.

Lets help protect each other. You can find more information at cdc.gov.
