The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently listed five tips on how to stay safe and protect yourself when you head outside during the coronavirus pandemic.
The five tips are rather simple, and it’s not like we haven’t heard them before. But the CDC shared the tips on a new page that suggests “cases are rising” and people need to “act now” to slow the spread.
The tips for going outside include:
- Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth.
- Stay 6 feet away from those who don’t live with you.
- Avoid crowds
- Avoid poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
- Wash your hands often. Use sanitizer if you can’t wash them.
In general, the CDC said there are three important ways to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, including wearing a mask to protect yourself and others, stay at least 6 feet away from those who don’t live with you and avoid large crowds.
