  • Wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth regardless of vaccination status

  • Continue other measures such as hand washing and cleaning/disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.

  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
