While Georgia moves forward in reopening businesses, it is important for every citizen to take steps to protect themselves and others from the spread COVID-19 in every community:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water a not available, us an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue. If a tissue is not available, use the inside of your elbow to cover yourself.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect high-touch objects and surfaces.
  • Wear cloth face coverings in places where maintaining a six-foot distance from others is difficult or impossible.
