While the number of daily new COVID-19 cases has decreased across Georgia, it is important for everyone to take steps to protect against the spread COVID-19 in every community:

  • Wear cloth face coverings in places where maintaining a six-foot distance from others is difficult or impossible.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • 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 your cough or sneeze.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect high-touch objects and surfaces.
  • When out in public, keep 6 feet between yourself and other, and avoid crowds.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
