Stop the spread of the flu and COVID-19

This year, it's especially important to help keep our communities healthy.
Protect yourself and those around you.

  • Get your flu shot. Protect yourself, your family and community from getting and spreading the flu.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer.
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • Keep practicing physical distancing.
    • Wear a mask or face covering if you cannot physical distance.
  • Stay home and away from others if you're feeling ill.

It can be hard to tell the difference between symptoms of the flu and COVID-19. If you have symptoms, isolate yourself from others, and call your healthcare provider or local public health.
