How to help slow the spread of COVID-19:
  • Get the vaccine - It's the most effective way to protect yourself and others
  • Wear a face covering - especially when indoors or in crowded outdoor places
  • Practice social distance - especially avoid contact with people who you know are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick - except to get medical care
  • Wash your hands - often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Cover your couch or sneeze - with your arm or inner elbow, not your hands
  • Clean & disinfect - frequently touched objects and surfaces
Delta Variant - What do we know?
  • Causes more infections and spreads faster than early forms of COVID-19
  • More contagious - may cause more than 2x as many infections
  • Data suggests that it causes more severe illness than previous variants in unvaccinated people
  • Unvaccinated people remain the greatest concern
  • Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others (but spread the virus for a shorter time)
