What increases your risk of infection?

You are more likely to be infected with coronavirus if:

  • You have close contact with an infected person (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes without masks)
  • You are frequently in a group setting (like an assisted living facility, college dormitory, homeless shelter)
  • You have been in an area with high infection rates

You can reduce the risk to yourself and others by:

  • Wearing a mask
  • Practicing physical distancing
  • Washing your hands often
