NCHD encourages everyone to keep COVID-19 prevention in mind during the Labor Day holiday. While there is not yet any vaccine to protect against COVID-19 transmission, you can take action to reduce your risk:

  • 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.
  • Keep at lease 6 feet between yourself and others in public spaces.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • 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.
