I am Black and/or Hispanic. What can I do to lower my chances of getting COVID-19?

The best way to protect yourself is to avoid situations in which you may be exposed to the virus.

If you or someone you care for is at higher risk of getting sick with COVID-19, take steps to protect them, as well as yourself, from getting sick. These steps include:

  • Stay home and follow isolation practices
  • Wash your hands often
  • Stay away from people you know are sick
  • Wear simple cloth face coverings in public settings
