We can all take these steps to safeguard our health.

Model and encourage healthy habits.

  • Wear a cloth face covering.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water and for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.
  • Stay at home and away from others if you are sick.

Help reduce anxiety and stigma about COVID-19.

Teach staff, volunteers, clients and guests how they can protect themselves against illness. Worry and misunderstanding can create fear and mistrust. Disease can affect anyone. Use these resources to help reduce COVID-19 anxiety and stigma.

Make sure staff, volunteers, clients and guests know where to find accurate information.

Point them to our websiteWashington State Department of Health and CDC, including American Sign Language videos from the CDC and  Department of Health.
