Social Media Toolkit: Prevent Getting Sick

Much is unknown about how the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads. We believe it spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when someone who is sick coughs or sneezes.

You can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19 by following simple daily precautions.

Your mask should:

✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils

✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face

✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through

✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a mask. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create masks.
