PREVENTION AND PREPARATION

From the Maryland Department of Health, here are some basic steps to help keep yourself and your loved ones healthy.

STAY INFORMED: Visit cdc.gov for the most recent general updates and health.maryland.gov for the latest information on COVID-19 in Maryland.

PROTECT YOURSELF: Practice everyday actions to promote good health and prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work or school.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

PREPARE: Build a preparedness kit for your home in case you are sick with any respiratory virus and need to stay at home. See health.maryland.gov for details. Examples include:

  • Pain relievers, fever reducers, decongestants, and cough drops.
  • Alcohol–based hand sanitizer.
  • Thermometer.
  • Facial tissues, paper products.
  • Nonperishable food.
  • Extended supply of prescription medications.
  • Diapers or pet supplies if needed.

There is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, but you should get a flu shot — it’s not too late. It will not prevent COVID-19, but getting a flu shot will help keep you and your loved ones healthy as we continue to see widespread flu.

Visit health.maryland.gov/coronavirus for up-to-date information and resources, including the latest information on COVID-19 status in Maryland.
