General Tips to Stop the Spread

A potential exposure is defined as having household contact or having close contact within 6 feet of an individual with confirmed or suspected COVID-19. The timeframe for having contact with an individual includes the period of time of 48 hours before the individual became symptomatic. Potential exposure is further defined as coming in contact with someone:

  • who has had close contact: within 6 feet or less for a total of 15 minutes or longer within a 24-hour period starting from two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated
  • with COVID-19 who has symptoms (in the period from 2 days before symptom onset until they meet criteria for discontinuing home isolation; can be laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness)
  • who has tested positive for COVID-19 (laboratory confirmed) but has not had any symptoms (in the 2 days before the date of specimen collection until they meet criteria for discontinuing home isolation)


Wear your mask correctly!

  • Wash your hands before putting on your mask
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
  • Don’t use a mask with an exhalation valve or vent

From the Centers for Disease Control:

  • Stay home when sick
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Wash hands; use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water unavailable
