Do you know the Three Cs for protecting during COVID?
View the Sarpy/Cass Health Department COVID-19 Risk Dial (for the entire area).
- Once you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
- You should get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
Wear a mask
- Masks should be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially around people who don’t live with you.
- Wear your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
Stay 6 feet away from others
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other people.
- Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces
- Avoid indoor spaces that do not offer fresh air from the outdoors as much as possible.
- Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or movie theaters puts you at higher risk for COVID-19.
Wash your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
- Then throw used tissues in the trash, and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Clean and disinfect
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
- This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Then, use a household disinfectant.
Monitor Your Health Daily
- Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
- Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
